It's not just/only tasteless crap, but the fact that you don't have a 
product to sell so you find a way to repackage 'nothing' and make it 
look like 'something'.  It's a shortcut to doing real work.  There are a 
lot of very gullible people and/or people who are simply not educated in 
the wiles of the world.  Ridiculous offers appear ridiculously enticing 
to folks who are desperate.
