Update, I was trying to ignore SIL as I was busy as all get out at the office and too tired when I got home to deal with it, she ended up calling three nights in a row, and pretty late at night (for me). Not being one who has their phone glued to their hand, I wouldn't have heard the call anyway. The last message she left Thursday night was a bit off-putting *get off the sofa and come and talk to me, get off the sofa* (paraphrasing).

I'd already decided this product would be a bad choice for her, and just emailed her back telling her why, and I did my best to keep it polite, despite being fairly ticked off by this time. I did end with this:
Lastly, I have neither the time nor desire to try to sell/promote a product I haven’t even tried out yet – and I would never try to force feed it to my friends and coworkers.

I hope this is the end of discussion.
And got this:
Looking forward to seeing your "after" pictures in 90 days.

End of discussion.
I'd say that relationship is quite dead. I meant it too, I would never go chasing friends/family/coworkers on any product, especially one I hadn't even used long enough to give a proper recommendation.

At home with a good book and the cat...

It's interesting to me how frequently rudeness and a lack of self-awareness are linked.

What a dullard!
