The Secret of Making People

Fall in Love With You

Congratulations on your enquiry!
Announcing a little known discovery that has been distilled into

a proven and
easy to use system that can easily make people fall in love
with you.

Make Anyone Like You, Appreciate and Love You In 30 Seconds or
Less!

Etcetera, etcetera.

It is about a report one has to read and then perform according to it,
to make all ones' messages immediately accepted (and much more). Can
anyone tell me more about this? I recall some messages from Aaron Lynch
about similar announcements or practices.

By the way: For those who want to do some empirical memetics: it is only
5 .
