Talk:pyramid scheme

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

Rolled back removal of "illicit." Note that for the English term, the term itself conveys to the listener a strong pejorative sense; if the object of discussion is somehow not illegal in all countries, it is at the very least immoral and illicit. Likewise, if a speaker were to compare a company or specific practice to a pyramid scheme, the speaker is trying to convey a strongly pejorative sense - stronger than, say, multi-level marketing. --Connel MacKenzie 20:59, 28 December 2007 (UTC)
