The 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. Steadson, now 'suspects' that 'MLM' has been the reality-inverting front for fraud

I thought that your free-thinking readers deserve a good laugh.
The unmasked 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. David Steadson (a.k.a. 'IBOFB' a.k.a.'Insider' a.k.a. 'Icerat'), has lately made the absurd admission (albeit in his tortuous school-boy English) that the majority of so-called 'MLM companies' are 'poorly-disguised scams with bogus products' and that even within the minority of what he arbitratrily defines as 'legitimate MLM companies' (presumeably Steadson means 'Amway'), 'some products are worthless and not worth the price charged.' 
Mr. Steadson (if he really is just one individual) posted his crackpot confession on Wikipedia, where many ill-informed people have assumed that the truth about 'MLM business opportunities' can be found, because they imagine that the 'Neutral Point of View' (rules) of Wikipedia would prevent racketeers from controlling its content. 
Unfortunately, for a long time, the billionaire bosses of the 'Amway' mob, in the shape of their unmasked Lord Haw Haw, have been especially active on Wikipedia, attempting to maintain their rapidly-crumbling monopoly of information about their hidden criminal objectives. In response, various people have complained to Wikipedia about Mr. Steadson (a self-confessed 'Amway' agent, who has run multiple propaganda Websites which steadfastly pretend to be independent of 'Amway') systematically removing from the pages of Wikipedia anything which begins to reveal the ugly truth about what lurks behind 'MLM' in general, and 'Amway' in particular. In order to continue his vile activities on Wikipedia, Mr. Steadson has tried to pretend affinity with the 'Neutral Point of View' editors of Wikipedia by attempting to character-assassinate all free-thinking individuals challenging the authenticity of 'MLM,' by arbitrarily defining them as 'a small, but vocal, minority of MLM critics.'  In a classic, reality-inverting declaration of his alleged honest and honourable objectives Steadson, in the guise of 'Icerat'  (who has freely-admitted to being under contract to 'Amway'), steadfastly pretends to be a Neutral Point of View editor on Wikipedia. Laughably, he says :
'I am Australian living in Europe. My major interests on Wikipedia are in monitoring and updating pages related to the direct selling industry - a 40 billion industry involving tens of thousands of companies and millions of people. I've noticed extreme amounts of not neutral point of view editing often appears in these articles, both by supporters and critics. I've noted that critical edits are often aided by a very small but vocal minority of critics, who, virtually by definition, have more time to edit and change these than may those with experience and knowledge in the area, who are usually working part-time businesses on top of full-time employment. In addition there's been a tendency for editors to use easily accessible sources (unfortunately including self-published websites) both as sources for the articles as well as for their own "self-education" while ignoring a large body of more reliably published work, particularly books and pay-walled academic papers. Unfortunately this has often lead to clear WP:UNDUE and WP:BALANCE problems. Hopefully I can help Wikipedia develop fair, balanced, accurate, and well sourced articles in these areas.' 
However (apparently faced with imminent expulsion from Wikipedia), Mr. Steadson has lately felt obliged to declare that 'he suspects' that the majority of 'MLM' companies are actually obvious fakes which have, in fact, been the reality-inverting front for fraud  
'Let me first say I have an overall positive view of the network marketing concept. That does not mean I believe every company that uses (or claims to use) network marketing/MLM is legitimate, nor that every product they market is legitimate. Indeed to the contrary - I suspect a majority of companies that claim to be legitimate MLM companies are in fact not, and are poorly disguised scams with bogus products. Even within the legitimate MLM companies, some products are worthless or not worth the price charged. This is no different to any other industry. 
When faced with any form of criminal deception, a neutral position is actually an irresponsible admission of ignorance. Therefore, Corporate Frauds Watch has taken the well-informed, and responsible, position that all the thousands of propaganda broadcasts (apparently made by Mr. Steadson) signed 'IBOFB', 'Insider' , 'Icerat', etc. which have appeared on the Net over the years proudly proclaiming the legitimacy of 'MLM' in general and of 'Amway' in particular, have been part of an overall pattern of ongoing, major racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970, and clarified by subsequent US Supreme Court judgements). Those persons who are legally-responsible for the content of Wikipedia should take note that all these propaganda statements have been based only on anecdotal evidence. In reality, no quantifiable evidence (in the form of audited-accounts; particularly, income tax receipts) has ever been cited by Mr. Steadson, or his de facto criminal associates, which has proved that any so-called 'MLM company' has ever been operated lawfully (i.e. a significant percentage of its non-salaried commission agents have made their livings by regularly retailing products, and/or services, to the public for a profit). Indeed, each time a so-called 'MLM company' has been independently investigated, it has been found to have been operating unlawfully.
Many so-called 'MLM companies' have already been closed-down as dissimulated money circualtion schemes, but others (like 'Amway') have survived by introducing fake 'money-back guarantees' and 'retail rules' (which have not been enforced) and by making empty promises to the authorities, that henceforth, they will operate lawfully. Again, this has been part of a pattern of ongoing, major racketeering activity (as defined by the US federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, 1970, and clarified by subsequent US Supreme Court judgements).

The success of Amway and other MLM, as descrived by David Steadson aka insider aka IBOFightback aka icerat aka insider201283, etc, can only use anecdotal evidence to display success in Amway and MLM because there is no significant about of bonafide unbiased evidence of success.

Unless you want to compare that success to the people who win the powerball lottery. LOL

Here is comment posted by a Hindi-speaking gentleman who was cheated by Amway India.Though for non-Hindi speaking people it would be difficult to follow, the gist is understandable. He was disgusted with the Amway's long promises.

Ska has left a new comment on the post "The 'Amway' Lord Haw Haw, Mr. Steadson, now 'suspe...":

Amway members are totally fraud.
sabse pahale ye apne friends ko hi bakara (fool) banate hai.bolenge ki inka product best hai, 100% money back guarantee,forced to join amway membership and will say to u if u want to quit within 3 month if u r not satisfied, u will get whole money back with some tax .
Now friends i want to tell u whole reality.
1. 100% money back nahi mile ga.

2. jab tum amway sponcer se product wapas kar apna 100% money wapas lena chahoge,tumko
Itna pareshhan karenge & tumahara itna time waste hoga ki
Tum khud product wapas nahi karoge.(jabki product lete samay tumko bolenge ki jab tum chao saman wapas hojayega very easily.
Pahale product ke liye daily tumko time denge but jab product wapas karna chahoge tumko time nahi denge.

So friends is post ko read karne ke baad may be amway members different comments karenge and u will be confused so apne money, time, respect(ye word maine is liye use kiya hai ki jab aap murkh ban jate ho and amway ki,ya amway members ki koi complain nahi kar pate tab khud ka respect hurt hota hai agar aap ki apni koi self respect hai.) ko save karne ki tips remember kar len.
A. amway members jab aap ko apna product den kabhi bhi uska payment na karen.within 30 days and 30% use karne ke andar if u fell product is good tabhi usko money den,other wise product wapas kar den.amway member ko to 100% money back ho hi jaye ga jaisa wo bolte hain.agar wo aap se amway member par believe karne ko bolte hain,to aap money ke liye unse khud par believe karne ke liye to bol hi sakte hai waise bhi wo amway member aap ka koi known hi ho ga.(tabhi to aap ko jaldi murkh banayega).

B. Amway members ki emotional talks par bilkul mat dyan di jiye ye log motivational talk,family story bahut banate hain.CD and meetings attend kar So product lete samay kewal hidden condition par dyan dijiye.

C. Ye aap se bolenge ki whole world me log pagal nahi hai jo amway ke products le rahe hai.

{ O.k. Inke 1-2 product sahi hain eg LOC. iska matlab ye nahi ki sare product hi sahi hai.}
WHOLE WORLD ME TO LOG KABHI YE BHI MANTE TE KI 1. SUN EARTH KE ROUND MOTION KARTA HAI. 2. MOON PAR OLD WOMAN COTTON BANA RAHI HAI ETC. SO whole world par mat jao khud ka diamg lagao and amway members ki bataon par na aakar apne dimag se kaam ki jiye.
D. Inke nutrilite herbal nahi hain ingredients ko sahi se read karen.
