I don't know, I guess I was raised differently. From the beginning, I've worked many different retail jobs from, restaurants to hardware stores to plant nurseries to supplement sales to selling motorcycles.
I needed a job just like the next guy, but if I didn't believe in the product I was selling, I wouldn't take the job.
Now maybe I read into it wrong here, but it appears that a guy is knowingly selling a product to people that doesn't work as advertised hence the terms "voodoo" and "snake oil".
Regardless if the customer is willing and happy, if you sell something to someone that is pure crap, I see that as a rip off.
The very basic core of doing business, IMO, should have a foundation of integrity.
