Testimonials are powerful persuaders, especially if they make it sound less than perfect. The problem is finding the source to verify such claims is usually impossible. At least other methods have real people who have had real results.
Vector was and is a scam to avoid.
As far as the "Kitty" site, my problems are this:
1. "Kitty" did not get money back for everyone who she ripped off by promoting GHR.
2. "Kitty" still doesn't get it, promoting another quack product (Kalo) under the guise of a test with no scientific merit. She did the same "consumer tests" with the GHR device she used to rip people off with.
3. "Kitty" acts like her site is a consumer site, but it started as a sales platform for Judith Stephens and remains one for the handful of hair removal people who have aligned themselves with Judith/"Kitty." Most so-called moderators are actually clients.
4. People don't like to be lied to or have their comments censored. "Kitty" has chosen to mislead people, right down to her fake name, and she censors facts and websites that don't match her version of the truth.
5. Some of the laser and electrology people who support the "Kitty"/GHR project are actually experienced and good choices in their areas, but I would suggest not supporting anyone who thinks it's OK to stand by in silence while a fellow board member and "Kitty" client rips off consumers. One of them even offered to double a quack's reward put forth for my personal information (hi Shelby!), which goes to show what unethical people they really are.
So, just because someone participates over there doesn't mean they are good or bad at their job, it just calls into question whether or not they put consumers ahead of their own petty motivations. Anyone with ethics distances themselves from their association with "Kitty"/Judith in time. People like her are bad news, especially for consumers.
