Oh, dear - he used "that" word - the truth bypass word.

"I believe this is a great time for you users."

By using the word "believe", all credence from a statement can be assumed to be missing. A slippery word used by politicians and marketeers alike as a shortcut to "I have to say this" or "It's insane and I can't back it up with anything even passing close to a sentient rationale, so this word is my Get Out Of Jail word that bypasses the lot."

"Each man has his price Bob, and yours was pretty low."
