Hi BB,

I quickly went thru this site.  Are they connected with Cyberonics?  Did they enter the forum?  If so, what are they looking for?

Thanks, Anne

Marketing firms hired by CYBX attempt to see what people are posting about so they can modify their marketing techniques accordingly.  Whenever I find them in the site I ban them!  I will not allow the postings of my membership to be a basis for their marketing puffery.

Gee.... the one and only thing people want to hear is the TRUTH, not some sugarcoated half-truths.  The REAL truth.

My opinion of cyberonics is getting and lower and lower, when I read stuff like this!  Good for you Birdbomb!  They (the company you warned against)  should be banned from going onto the internet at all!  

Keep up the good work you are doing!

Sincerely,
Bonnie

Bonnie, they have doing this for years.  But the pace picks ups whenever CYBX trolls my site.

Geez you guys...this is crazy.  There are trolls everywhere.  I am new to extensively using a computer.  My experience on the job did not include internet searching, and I was trained how to use their programs which didn't require internet access.  So, I am completely amazed at all the things I can find on the computer.  If Cyberonics was so confident in selling their device, why do they need to hire a marketing firm?  Suppose maybe to reverb the scam???

Hope all of you are doing well!

This isn't exclusive to CYBX.  Marketing firms research the product so they can create their ad campaign, it just whenever something attracts the attention of CYBX and they visit my site, it's followed up with visits from the marketing firms hired by them.  

Remember, #1 It's a Business and the goal of any business is profit.  Marketing is IMPERATIVE to that goal.
