RSD charged $300 for a worthless DVD set but even pua forums acknowledged short-term harm, sale lost, via torrent was a worthy way of cannibalising their DVD market when that pirater becomes an attendee on a $3000 seminar.
Besides considering most pua companies haven't had full pua "bootcamp" schedules since 2011 this thread is worthless and out of date.
PUAHATE put the final nails in the coffin of pua.
Since I made this post Reddit PUA was banned. But I think you are over-estimating the conversion of buyers of PUA products to attendees of live seminars and bootcamps. I believe it to be very small, only a fraction. Maybe 10% or less. The vast majority of consumers of these products will never attend a seminar or bootcamp because of the forbidding cost. That's why companies and individual PUAs haven't retired their products and continue coming out with new ones. The release of products is partly and indirectly promotional for their other services, but many of these products are marketed as the only thing you will need. So guys who don't want to attend a bootcamp and have no intention of doing so, will still be lured into buying their products to improve their love life.
