[2012-Dec-28] False.

False. People are LESS likely to take something that is advertised as free, because there is always a subconscious suggestion of a catch.

For instance:

FREE (rotten) FIREWOOD
FREE (std-laden) SEX
FREE (bedbug-housing) MATTRESS
FREE (abridged) THESAURUS

These aren't people we're talking about. They're English majors.
Paranoid? Probably. But just because you're paranoid doesn't mean that there isn't an invisible demon

I think all graduate students would fall for the word "free". If it's really free, who cares what shape it's in? :lol:
