What community? There's no one here any longer. You ran everyone off and there is no means of finding this place for new people as there is no longer a link on CPYS to this forum or coming from anywhere else for that matter.
I'm sure Admins don't see this post as "helpful" but rest assured, the users do. We all want to know - what is/was the point in all these changes if you have no intent to promote this forum?
Responding to (d), Pyramid scheme? There were others than just myself that promoted their products or services here but due to lack of understanding everyone thinks it's a scam. Everything isn't a scam, nothing wrong with being skeptical however, people should know facts first. All of them aren't however, there are some good ones. Some of these companies have been around for years, some even before a number of members here were born. If it's a scam how has it been in business for so long? Just because it's Multilevel Marketing doesn't mean it's a scam. I think it's a shame that people should be so negative towards this industry, opinions are opinions. Considering what's going on in this economy GOOD jobs are hard to find and from what I've seen in this area minimum wage is prodominent here. You do have to work hard, it's not always easy, some just aren't willing to do the work. The industry simply is not for everyone. But for those that are, it can be a potential game changer.
If you look at the structure of most corporations they're structured the same. People involved with insurance, real estate are paid in a similar manner with my company in particular. How do I know this, one of my business associates I work with is in Real Estate, a second is a mortgage broker. People shouldn't be so quick to assume just because it's mlm or home based it's a pyramid. No intention of posting a link just trying to make a point.
A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business model that involves promising participants payment or services, primarily for enrolling other people into the scheme, rather than supplying any real investment or sale of products or services to the public.
If your company doesn't fall into that category, then why did you write a novel up there? I mean, if they said "No blondes allowed" I wouldn't protest it on my own behalf... seeing as I am not a blonde.
