Summary: The cult sends out the shortest-ever e-mail solicitation piece, good for many laughs. With tongue deeply in cheek, we measure this effort against real-world marketing principles. We then measure it against the marketing principles laid out in Hubbard's "management tech" books for additional fun. Unsurprisingly, we discover a major heap of fail.

Editorial Note: I have been incredibly backed up with various projects and have not had a chance to get back to people who have written in with offers to help with site design, with story ideas, or other contributions. I want to let you know that I am slogging through almost 300 e-mail messages and responding as best I can; I'm still trying to deal with messages that are three weeks old (!) and am finally making some progress. Please be patient. I welcome your contributions, but am just completely buried.
