We WILL hunt you down...
The Institute is now using its families coordinators as sales people. This is an actual email -- not satire -- and yes, I have permission to post this from a recipient.

Dear Mr. [Recipient],
I have noticed that you have not yet signed up for Daily Success! I just wanted to make sure that you don't miss out on such a valuable tool that can help you in discipling your family. Daily Success is not an in-depth program, but rather a simple daily email sharing insights on one command of Christ per week. Some have used them for morning Wisdom Searches with their family, while others have used them in their personal devotions to help them in their walk with the Lord. Our family has found them to be a great encouragement personally in keeping our focus on the things of the Lord during the day.
Mr. Gothard has asked me to contact you and find out if there is something hindering you from receiving the Daily Success emails. Please call or email me and let me know how we can assist you in receiving this valuable discipleship tool. I will send this information on to Mr. Gothard and we will do what we can to help you. If I do not hear from you within the next few days, I will try calling you as Mr. Gothard is looking to remove hindrances as soon as possible.
God bless your family and may His Word be a lamp to your feet and a light to your path today!

Obviously, anyone who has not signed up for Daily Success! (for the cost of $49) is in spiritual crisis.
