Picketing Amway/Quixtar Rallies: An Effective Strategy

there are a lot of disgruntled former Amway/Quixtar distributors out there. Amway sued some of these disgruntled distributors who were using the Internet to air their grievances (even though their web sites are amateurish, they were effective enough for Amway to go to the trouble of taking them to court).

This is a message to these disgruntled former distributors. Do you want to know an easy way to stick it to Amway? 1) Create one web site that contains plenty of critical but truthful information about Amway/Quixtar. Make sure that the site is easy to navigate and is user friendly. Give it a short, easy-to-remember domain name; 2) Go to Amway/Quixtar and exercise your right to picket. Make sure that the domain name is on some of the signs that picketers hold.

It doesn't get much easier than that.

UPDATE: I was thinking about why disgruntled Amway people haven't done this in the past. I think the answer is obvious: the makeup of the Amway distributorship is overwhelmingly Republican and right-wing. These are people who, for the most part, haven't particupated in union activities or protests. It has hurt them not to use this potent tactic.

I second your ideas. I have published a similar call to activism on my Blog. (Quixtar Cult Intervention)

Victims of AmQuix suffer in lonely silence still believing all the misinformation about being a loosing quitter.

Even when some people see through the haze of cult propaganda, many of the deceptions persist within the victimized folk long after they quit.

Others who strive blindly forward in Quixtar continue the "fake it until they make it" mindset. The problem is, they never really ever make it. These become the badly fleeced flock.
