Perfectfew's arguments didn't make much sense


Recommended Posts

For relaxation I have read more of his posts. Here is a quote from one of them which I think is the gist of his argument:

 

"I am educating everyone to the fact that Pat gets paid to promote doctors and says he is a "patient advocate". It is a conflict of interest in the worst way, and is probably illegal."

 

The problem with the illogical arument by Perfectfew is that just because somebody makes a fee for giving advice does not necessarily mean their advice is not the best possible. Brokers make money being paid a fee for giving advice, as to life insurance salesmen, lawyers, even doctors who may or may not recommend a certain medical procedure, not to mention the sears appliance salesman and that guy at Circuit City. How perfectfew could conclude being paid to give advice is illegal is beyond me, but he obviously is not a very astute guy.

 

The point is that people through their integrity and hard work develope certain reputations. Pat has been here a long time and I think deserves the reputation he has developed. Perfectfew simply could not understand that there is nothing inherently wrong with earning a fee to give advice. People certainly are free to give advice, as many do here, without giving advice, but everybody is entitled to earn a living. Its doubtful anybody would put the time and effort Pat does into researching the HT industry unless he could make a living at it.

 

Anyway, I guess I am just offended by the lack of logic in Perfectfew's posts. I almost feel bad he can't respond to me to try to defend himself. Maybe he will respond on his board.

Good points, Hoping!

 

The same hold's true for HT consultants.............just because they are paid for the advice they give about HT's, is the advice somehow tainted? Unless you work for a not-for-profit company, what person wouldn't get compensated for the advice they give on behalf of a service provided or for performing that particular service??

 

I don't know that I feel bad for Perfect Few. If anything, he's learned a valuable lesson in life. If he hasn't learned anything from his experience in this situation, then I do feel sorry for him as life will keep throwing him curveballs, sliders, sinkers......whatever, and he'll miss'em all!
