Buttsniffing 101… by Dizzy

 bend  over baby

 

Ok you bitches, am I missing something here?  I thought one of the rules of PinkTruth was that you could not advertise your business and you could not promote an MLM.  Right?

I know some of you were talking about this on another thread and this was just emailed to me.  Why don’t all you heffas read this thread and tell me if you think it violates the rules on PinkTruth.  And if you are in agreement with me, which I KNOW you will be, then how much ass lickin’ did Shay have to do in order to promote her business?  That’s right ladies, she must be shoved so far up Tracy’s ass, she aint seen the light of day for quite some time.  Well, at LEAST since August 25th.

 If I’m wrong about my observation, I might admit it.  Or not.  Either way, I think that’s some crazy shit right there!

I have a new website for my WAHM group.

I am sooooo proud of the ladies in this group.  So many of them that were in MLM’s when they joined are now forming their OWN businesses from scratch!  Yahoo  In fact, 2 of the members have joined together to start a cake decorating business!  (I am so proud!  Pepper)

The site is brand new – I would love some feedback.

PS – I would love it if you would sign the guestbook – feel free to sign with the PT website!  Rolling on the Floor

Thank you!

This is just a question, not a criticism. Maybe I did not read it right. But, are you allowing people in direct selling to promote their MLM?

Shay, I agree with everything that Lazy said and I have the same concern as SoozEQ.  I think it is great that you want to help women in business for themselves.  I hope you can accept some of the suggestions that these great women (Lazy and SoozEQ) have given you.

I have not set up strict rules about not allowing women from DS companies.  As I said, many of the ladies who were in DS companies/MLM ‘s when they joined are slowly “seeing the light” and starting their own companies.  Thumbs Up

Slowly but surely I am getting a group that is purely women who have started a business from scratch.  Smiley

I will work on the centering.  Smiley

I don’t have links to the SBA or other sites like that on the site – when they join the group, I sit down with them and figure out what they want to do and then help them get what they need from the SBA and other small biz sites.  Smiley

What a really good goal. I remember looking at WAHM a couple years back, and it kind of made me crazy the way they had so much MLM promotion there. I thought so much had gone off track from what the site seemed like it would be about.

Anyway, I’m glad to see that you have a group who are getting away from MLM and doing real businesses. More power to you all Smiley

Shay,
I wish I had someone like you 20 years ago  to help guide me OUT of Mary Kay and to see that my talents could have been used to start my own profitable business.  I THOUGHT that was what I was doing when I started MK.  Women need someone to help them look at all aspects of Direct sales/MLMs before they start or before they devote years and then regret they didn’t see things clearly.  You can truly enrich women’s lives and I applaud you!   Clap

I am VERY subtle.  I never talk down about anyone’s company.  I even order from members if they have something I like/want (Avon, Pampered Chef, etc.).

But I listen to them.  When they have a concern, I listen.  Maybe it was a week where every class cancelled.  Maybe it was a product or catalog change.  Maybe it was just just being frustrated with not making any money.  Or working really hard to only make a little money.

And then I talk to them about either a) getting a regular job or b) starting their own biz from scratch.  Never critical.  Just suggesting.

  1. FreeFromPT (sickie/happ2beme) said

    *rolling eyes* I guess MLMs are super cool on PT now? PUR where’s your MLM-dar you so proudly spout off about?

    Things that make you go hmmm……

  2. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Oh yeah, made me go hmmm a couple of times. You know Tracy had to have approved of this thread since it’s still up. If she didn’t, the thread would have *poofed* or Tracy would have ripped Shay a new asshole.

    I smell a double standard here bitches…

    HOOKERS!

  3. ScrewU said

    Oh yeah! Let us not forget the stoning of annezoo that is a sticky for everyone else to read lest they make that same error of ‘supporting’ an MLM. Maybe Tracy and PUR are too busy staying hidden on Pink Truth and looking for goodbye posts to delete or alter.

    Oh wait… they’re still trying to find the mole I bet!!!!

  4. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Yeah, they are scrambling to control their sheep

  5. FreeFromPT (sickie/happ2beme) said

    Bwahahahahahaha the mole. *snicker*

  6. Things that make you go hmmmmm. Who is Shay? Come out come out wherever you are!!

  7. Well just to mess with you dizzy, here’s a thought. MAYBE…PUR decided not to say anything to Shay along those lines because she has gotten pummeled on here AND by PT people too when she says that. So, I dunno, I guess I think it’s possible she’s trying to figure out the best way to repond, or if to respond at all, you know?

    She’s kind of damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t. That’s just my 2 cents.

    Shay, sweetie….I get what you are saying but I think for you to have this “agenda” with your site is going to be poison to it. I’m sure you are not really trying to be deceitful but it reads shady…go back and re-read your posts again. Doesn’t it read shady?

    Now, if you actually make it part of the site that you are there to help women do their own thing and TAKE OFF the part about Direct Selling being welcome then that’s clear. You lose some membership opportunities but at least you have your integrity.

    I still say she has a right to run whatever kind of website she wants to run…I just think it’s confusing and misleading.

  8. There is a great board for women entreprenuers (sp?) called http://www.theswitchboards.com

    It’s not as homespun as WAHM…there are few to NO mlms and these women are awesome. There are great resources for women starting real cottage industry businesses….I got some great info on adding a “shopping cart” to my site and some great website info as well from women who run their own webdesign companies…it rocks…

    shay, write it down…go there and be blessed

  9. ScrewU said

    Mrs
    I beg to differ. Shay can not have whatever kind of website she wants. I do believe that if she had a website with kid porn on it, that she would get shut down lickety split.

    I do think it’s shady of ‘Shay” (wow, never noticed that before… shay… dee) to do the ole bait and switch. But I do have to give her props for building a report on Pink Truth and then touting her own business. It reminded me of Lazy Garden’s tips on how to increase your business revenue by blogging and becoming part of online ‘communities’. Very good

  10. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Yo Mrs….I”m not talkin about PUR doing or saying anything. I’m talking about TRACY allowing it. It goes against her rules….and yet there it is. Odd I tell ya, fishy…

    HOOKERS!

  11. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    WTH?!?!?! Damn, I’m so shocked to see PUR not rearing her ugly ass and screaming, bitching, moaning, about promotion of MLM.

    I’m ready to scream. Double standard indeed.

  12. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    I still can’t believe Tracy is letting her little sheep run amok ova there. Is she *GASP* away from her computer? Is it really possible?

    HOOKERS!

  13. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    YES
    SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING

    Alright, at the risk of getting tomatoed, I am going to share this.

    I have a hard time with this thread. It seems to me that although this site does not actively promote MLMs, it doesn’t condemn them either. While I personally do not see anything wrong with that, as I certainly don’t take a hard line against them (as long as people know they have a very expensive hobby, and not a business), the issue that I am having is that one of my friends here in cyber world got nearly crucified for posting about her business. It was taken that she was promoting MLMs and “feeding the beast” though I can’t remember who exactly said that. I am sure I could look it up.

    I had a very difficult time swallowing the, what I considered public humiliation, after she discreetly got rid of her own post not to cause any issues.

    To me, this is not much different from my friend. My problem is not with the website, or even the promoting it. Personally my problem is that I really see this as another thread on the same cloth. The difference is that one is being encouraged, and one was reprimanded.

    Maybe I have been up too long, and I am missing something here. Maybe it doesn’t matter anymore, but I have to ask why one is allowed and the other was not.

    You know, everytime we start to think that Apple is coming around and seeing the light, she gets hit over the head again by Tracy. She’s almost there but not quite

  15. Licious said

    I love the comment about NEVER talking down about anyone’s company. Maybe I’m reading it wrong but that seems like a “subtle” slap in the face to TC/PT. After all, they have zero tolerance for ANYONE that might give mlm’s even a microscopic chance.

  16. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    i’m hoping she’s coming around

  17. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Oh, she’s definitely catching on. Glad SOMEONE called this little discretion out….geez……

    HOOKERS!

  18. eyesicle said

    Go Apple! You rock…now come on ova here……

  19. Pix said

    And have you seen Tracy’s reply to Apple’s post?

  20. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    She likes the brown noser.

  21. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    she = tracy

  22. ScrewU..
    you got a point there. ack.

  23. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    For all you banned bitches, here’s two more posts:

    Tracy: This situation has a very different set of circumstances.

    🙂

    apple berry: How?

    Both promote their business. Both do no take a hard line against MLM.

    This one certainly violates this new rule:
    Promoting MLMs or any mlm-related businesses (tools, websites for promoting mlms, etc) is not allowed on Pink Truth. This means there are no links allowed. Violation of this rule is cause for being immediately and permanently banned from the site.

    And the other thread, which would violate this one, did not b/c it didn’t exist, and was encouraged to seek her out:
    Advertising is not allowed on this site. Pink Truth is not a place for you to sell your goods or services. If someone inquires about a particular product or service, you are welcome to reply. However, blatant advertising will not be tolerated either on the public pages of the site, or via private messaging. On occasion, Pink Truth will permit advertising by selected individuals. This is solely at our discretion and does not mean that you are free to advertise.

    I can see some differences yes, but the main difference I see is in how this thread has been encouraged, and the other was… not. I am just wondering where the line is that I am missing.

  24. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    Tracy: Shay can correct me if I’m wrong, but this women’s group is not a business. She asked for feedback on her site for a support group, and we’ve given it.

    fucking doesn’t sound like a support group to me at all. sounds more like a “we’ll help you with your business, MLM, DS, or self employed”

  25. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    Mentally, you are right. Tracy is just bending over letting the fudge licker suck her dry. Oh yeah, she LURVES it.

    HOOKERS!

  26. What A Maroon said

  30. why? not said

    I agree with props for appleberry. And I’m going to give her karma every 1.5 hours for it!

  31. ScrewU said

    Well done Mrs!!!
    Did that hurt? Are you ok? Do you need to lie down and take a nap?
    Now you just pace yourself or you’ll pull something

    FOF has sumptin right there. My famous quote, “Tracy will throw her out like her unused condoms and dead AA batteries”

  36. LOL! Damn Gina, you are nasty….

  37. ScrewU said

    Ah! I get it now. If Tracy says that Shay’s promotion of her site is a business, then Tracy has to admit that she uses Pink Truth as a business (i.e. avenue of income). It’s all so clear now
    So she has to defend Shay’s site as a support group because thats what Tracy has, right?

  38. Wow, are you a Fraud Investigator ScrewU? That was amazing!

  39. You need to start a blog called Phraud Philes, all about your master ‘vestigator skills!

    pinkmomster: hmm, I thought I posted a little while ago on this thread, but must have clicked on the wrong button ’cause it didn’t appear. What I was trying to say was that I have to agree with apple berry here. I have been having some concerns about this for awhile and apple said it so much better than I could have. Thankfully this is a place where we can speak up. I have felt rather uncomfortable in the past about voicing another opinion, but there have been several posts lately reminding us that we all are welcome to say what we are thinking. So, please, what is the difference in the two postings? I guess I didn’t see anything wrong with the other person asking for help with her business. She wasn’t trying to recruit anyone to something new, just trying to work with someone who knew the picture and is a PT member.
    thanks,
    pinkmomster

    apple berry:Ok, so it is ok to promote the website for women in MLM (whether or not they want out)…
    hmm… interesting.

    Like I said Shay, I didn’t have a problem with this site, I have a problem with the fact that is it ok for you to promo this site here, when others have been slapped down for promoting their business (even though their business was promoted by Tracy many times).

    In the previous case, she asked a simple question, got reprimanded. She erased the post so as not to cause issue with others. Instead of it dying there, it was reposted for the world to see here.

    In this case, all of the feed back is nice, so we’ll leave the thread up, and say nothing? She is promoting MLM. This thread is asking for input on something that supports MLM.

    I guess I am too dense and tired (should have been in bed an hour ago) to fully understand the complexity of the issue at hand that makes these two situations so different.

    BTW Shay would be silly to contradict you. I guess that makes me silly too. Hmm, who knew?

    usedtobepinkfreshmeat:This website doesn’t sound like a support group, but a helpful tool to help women WITH their businesses, whether be it MLM or what Shay said earlier, a business they’re starting on their own.

    Says it on the front page, clear as day.

    apple berryTrue enough!

    And based on the number of email (not PM) messages I have gotten, I would have to say the 3 of us are not the only ones who feel this way. But again… maybe we are all too dense. Somehow I don’t think that is the case though. I think these are different boxes for a very similar product.

    TRACY:She is not promoting MLM in my opinion. She asked for opinions on her website. She’s not selling anything to anyone here nor promoting any MLM to anyone here.

    The previous situation involved a comment about “feeding the beast” and was met with a very unnecessary hostile response. Without that, the whole thread may have gone differently. The thread was later restored because of untrue gossip about the thread – it was restored so people could see for themselves what was posted.

    Yes, threads like these involve judgment calls. And people may disagree.

    I guess I am too dense and tired (should have been in bed an hour ago) to fully understand the complexity of the issue at hand that makes these two situations so different.

    BTW Shay would be silly to contradict you. I guess that makes me silly too. Hmm, who knew?

    usedtobepinkfreshmeat: This website doesn’t sound like a support group, but a helpful tool to help women WITH their businesses, whether be it MLM or what Shay said earlier, a business they’re starting on their own.

    Says it on the front page, clear as day.

    apple berryTrue enough!

    And based on the number of email (not PM) messages I have gotten, I would have to say the 3 of us are not the only ones who feel this way. But again… maybe we are all too dense. Somehow I don’t think that is the case though. I think these are different boxes for a very similar product.

    TRACY: She is not promoting MLM in my opinion. She asked for opinions on her website. She’s not selling anything to anyone here nor promoting any MLM to anyone here.

    The previous situation involved a comment about “feeding the beast” and was met with a very unnecessary hostile response. Without that, the whole thread may have gone differently. The thread was later restored because of untrue gossip about the thread – it was restored so people could see for themselves what was posted.

    Yes, threads like these involve judgment calls. And people may disagree.

    (flower icon for floweryness – comment added by MFBT yet she really did add the damn flower icon)

  42. What is with the smilie face icon and the flowery icon….is that one of those smile while you get the slap down things?

  43. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    it’s tracy pretending she’s going to be nice about this. but i bet a fucking cookie apple berry is going to be banned

  44. Duped said

    Banned or have privileges withdrawn…wouldn’t surprise me in the least. Good for Apple for saying this though…and calling TC on how retarded, idiotic and hypocritical this makes her look (not that she hasn’t done that before, either).

    Fudge lickers.

  45. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    apple berry: LOL You really believe that don’t you?

    Ok, it’s good that people can disagree, because you will never be able to convince me that this is all that different, especially since *you* promoted the other site!

    ::sigh:: I guess it will just appear to me, and to others that there is an egregious double standard here, and that it’s OK to break some rules as long as it is done nicely (as this certainly is a business tool used to help others in their MLM, says so on the site itself).

    Shay, I wish you luck helping women in their MLM, because goodness knows they won’t get anywhere with the business as is. It does seem to be a nice site, for its stated purpose. I just believe that the purpose directly opposes the mission of PT, and I thought that was a no no here, as some friends of mine have learned the hard way.

    It is now late, and I should be off to bed. It will be interesting for me to see in the morning what the result of this thread is. I would like to believe it would be taken down, but somehow I doubt that will happen. Thank you, the rest of you, for your support as I questioned this, and you did too. You just weren’t tired enough to take the filter off 😉

    pinkmomster: I have to say that if someone had come back to me and accused me of “feeding the beast” I am not sure that I would have been cool, calm and collected. The original poster on that thread also wasn’t “selling anything to anyone here nor promoting any MLM to anyone here.”

  46. No Shit MFBT

  47. OOOOOOooooooooooooo, someones gonna get in troooouuuuuuuubbbbbbble!!!

  48. why? not said

    You ain’t a lyin’!

  49. why? not said

    I’m stayin’ up till I can give apple berry karma again!

  50. eyesicle said

    Day-um! Mrs., are you OK?

    Pink Monster and Apple are poking the bear….cool!

  51. eyesicle said

    BTW, Nice ass, Duh! (See top of post, you sick bitches!)

  52. Strawberry Shortcake said

    Ok, I really don’t give a flying flip what kind of website an individual puts up (as long as it’s not something like kiddie porn or other illegible stuff). But in this case, Shay is coming across as having a heap of credentials, even though she doesn’t claim anything. So she says “I don’t have links to the SBA or other sites like that on the site – when they join the group, I sit down with them and figure out what they want to do and then help them get what they need from the SBA and other small biz sites.” So what gives her the authority to help people? Is she just a nice person or what? Her very first post sounds like a Kaybot (sorry Tracy, I used your copywrited term LOL). Does Shay have a MLM business on the side? I don’t know Shay. From the small bit of contact I had with her at PT, she seemed ok. I seem to remember she said she was single mother with a disabled child. No offense to single mother’s or anything like that. Call me anything you want, but it seems that Shay’s website has an alternate agenda than helping women work at home. Or maybe I just need another cup coffee to clear my head.

  53. I’m ok…I went to bed and slept off the potty mouth-itis. LOL

    This is STILL absolute bullshit.

    ack! apparently blantant hypocricy brings out the worse in me.

    mrs…twice! My virgin eyes. 😉

  55. Don’t back down, Apple…Keep telling it like it is.

  56. mentallyfuckedbytracy said

    Agreed! Glad she said something.

    Hohoho, I love this! Word press actually approved my user name! HAHA!

    FOF has sumptin right there. My famous quote, “Tracy will throw her out like her unused condoms and dead AA batteries”

    Okay, reading the above line by dizzy made my morning!!!

    Me thinks Apple is smelling the coffee… which is burning at this point.

  60. Apple,

    Way to go! You are spot-on correct! I hope they are not firing up the barbecue for you over the weekend!

    PPPJ

  61. How could you NOT smell that burning brown shit in the bottom of the pot! HELL-O PEO-PLE!!!!

  62. Spank My Fanny said

    What does “apparently blatent” mean? LOL! When people realize they’ve made a mistake, they sometimes (usually?) try to rectify their mistakes. BUT, when under such scrutiny and criticism, people might defend their mistakes as if they do not need to apologize, go back and look at past decisions, rectify. It’s hard to admit mistakes. Shay has been graceful.

  63. FreeFromPT (sickie/happ2beme) said

    Let me refresh your memory about Shay spanks:

    https://somecallmeduh.wordpress.com/2007/08/19/mrs-metaphor-has-left-the-buildingagain/

    How is/was shay graceful about this siutation? Did she make a comment about this that tracy zapped? Help us understand where the words shay and graceful can be used in the same sentence.

  64. Spank My Fanny said

    She made a mistake. It was “group think” in that case. I was talking about what she said in her own thread, not in that situation.

  65. Hey spank
    I missed a comma…
    “apparently, blatant hypocrisy brings out the worst in me”

    sorry about that…that read confusing, I know.

    The hypocrisy is not Shay’s, it’s tracy’s. Shay made NO MISTAKE as far as I am concerned. She was merely asking for feedback on her site and again, nothin’ wrong with that. What is hypocritical is that Annezoo was bludgeoned for her post by PUR and Tracy…and after issuing “new rules” in the wake of that and hangin Anne out to dry on a sticky, as it were, Shay’s post is greeted differently. I do not understand why except that this is Tracy’s whim. This is how the site is run. It’s a “judgement call” and the judgement is uneven.

    Shay HAS been gracious. Anne was very gracious as well. She is a class act all the way and I do respect Shay’s efforts in her site and her responses to the people who have questioned her. Shay has not offered an apology to me for my new favorite label of DRAMAQUEEN but I have also not requested one…so, Free…I’m cool with that. I don’t think it’s really that telling of her character, I’m willing to give grace there…plus that I just think it’s funny…like “that metaphor person.”

    Spanky, email me if you wanna…you know I always want to talk if you have questions for me or whatever, babe.
    mrsmetaphor@mrsmetaphor.com

  66. Apple and pinkmomster will probably be here soon, if they aren’t already. You go, girls! Speak your mind, and remember what freedom really is!

    Just ask Mrs. M. – it’s the freedom to call BULLSHIT!

  67. FreeFromPT (sickie/happ2beme) said

    Good enough that metaphor person. 😉 You drama queen you.

    PUR weighed in her two cents saying how she “gently” reminded Anne of the rules. And called the Anneszoo thread a fiasco – helllllo PUR you are the fiasco!

    Somehow her MLM-dar did not go off on shay’s thread, BUT someone making up a poem about MK (where they dogged MK in the poem) set off PUR’s MLM-dar.

    PUR needs a new set of antennas.

  68. I am TOO a Daisy! said

    FFPT, PUR weighed in on that thread earlier today. She’s aware. She’s just choosing to ignore it.

    Surprisingly, there was no mention of the gossip thread…

  69. Spank My Fanny said

    I thought “apparently blatent” was a clever oxymoron. Oh well.

  70. 3-2-1…
    and now the moment you have all been waiting for…

    either they closed the “loophole” or Tracy got mad that I gave Appleberry karma yesterday…LOL…cause my login has been blocked.

    Maybe if I clean out my cookies it’ll come back but I don’t think I care enough to do that…

    So, I’ll just have to get my news from DUH and PTlies….is this a reliable source, Tracy? If not, feel free to “unblock” my login, okay?

    Dang, I wanted to give some karma to Shay for being in the middle of the sheist-storm…sorry, Shay.

  71. Spanky….no no no…I’m MRS METAPHOR, METAPHOR….not oxymoron! lol

    and man, I hardly ever do “clever!”

    hee hee

  72. Fox Spirit said

    Don’t worry Shay got karma from apple berry and usedtobepinkfreshmeat for getting caught in the crossfire.

  73. Oh wait, hold the phone…I got back in just now so I’m not blocked anymore! Thanks Tracy! Now I can have my cake and eat it too. That’s just super.

  74. FreeFromPT (sickie/happ2beme) said

    Hey foxy. 🙂

    Yeah, shay did get caught in the crossfire, I can agree with that. I just have to wonder if it’s a teensie weensie bit of karma comin back to bite her for being so harsh on others. ‘Nough said on that. I’ll move on, I promise.

    I’m grumpy today. 😦

  75. I am TOO a Daisy! said

    Yeah, I’m with FFPT. I’m not feeling so generous with Shay. She was horrible on the threads from last week and two weeks ago.

    Lucky for her they all got deleted, so no one on PT can go back and see just how nasty she was to the “dissenters”. (And just how much kissing up she did to Tracy during that time.)

    I am 100% confident that all that brown-nosing earned her the “promote your MLM-supporting website until the cows come home” pass.

    MOO.

  76. Rebecca said

    So Annezoo got busted because a *comment* was negative to her post.

    Shay is not busted because there have been no *comments* that were negative to her post.

    Is that right? I mean according to Tracy’s explaination? If my understanding is correct, then why wasn’t it the negative commenter who was busted, instead of Annezoo?

    Yup, it’s all about the current whim of TC.

  77. Well, Rebecca…the negative comment on the Annezoo thread was from PUR. lol…

  78. Rebecca said

    Ah………..

    I see.

  79. I love how TC continues to refer to PT with ‘our, us and we’….

    She must have expanded her office staff to Me, myself and I!

  80. Mentally Fucked by Tracy said

    fuck, i didn’t know shay was a bitch earlier.

    fuck you tracy for destroying the evidence.

  81. Strawberry Shortcake said

    Maybe our, us and we means she has roaches and rats in her virtual office in Chicago.

  82. Dizzy from the Dastardly ways of Tracy said

    SS, even the roaches scatter when Tracy is around.

    HOOKERS!
