Talk:pyramid scheme

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to navigation Jump to 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)
