What's the difference between this and "woo-meisters"?--Krejtalk 17:58, 11 March 2013 (UTC)

Damned good question. I figured a Shyster was to Law what a Quack was to Medicine, but that was before I learned the term "woo". --TheLateGatsby (talk) 18:18, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
So the difference is...?--Krejtalk 18:20, 11 March 2013 (UTC)
The descriptions would suggest that woo-meisters make money with woo-related things, while shysters are just crooks/criminals. However, Erich von Daniken is in this category, and I'm pretty sure his works qualify as woo.--Krejtalk 00:29, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
Fabrication of artifacts and financial fraud on top of the woo-peddling definitely puts von Daniken in this category. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 00:35, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
