What a perfect example given below by Jason H.

Go ahead and search for a QT competitor product that emphasizes that you 
talk to your lawyer.


Again, its really bad optics when the word "lawyer" keeps popping up

That is causing LOSS of SALES.

Poor John Turnbull below is now spending his money on his
lawyer or a competitor instead of sending those dollars to QT.

The horse and water analogy applies here.
