Months after having published my investigations into Elmore Oil, the interest has continued unabated.
In fact, page views are picking up as time goes by, in particular for these articles here and here, and now number in the many hundreds. This traffic has, in recent weeks, resulted in just three comments taking me to task on my findings and views. One of them was polite but full of factual errors, while the other two got a bit feisty. If you’re interested, you can see them in this thread, and here. But by far the majority of viewers of the relevant pages have not commented.
So, if you’re a potential elmore oil purchaser, and have stumbled across this article because google offered it to you, please let me know what you think about the earlier articles. You can read them all by typing ‘Elmore’ in the search box at rationalbrain.
Did they persuade you one way or the other? Were they too harsh? Or did they perhaps get you to think a bit more about whether to spend the money or not?
I don’t want to sound like a broken record (to sound younger, I should have said an MP3 on repeat), but I already acknowledge that many people will have positive experiences using Elmore Oil, so please, enough with the testimonials. My whole point with this series of articles is not to demonise Elmore and other similar remedies, but to highlight the excessive claims often made by purveyors of miracle cures. In the example of Elmore Oil, the only real testing showed that any old oil will do the trick (though I wouldn’t suggest diesel). So why is it that people won’t simply try some baby oil first?
Look forward to hearing what you make of it all.
