If you see posts that are inviting others to join, and you KNOW they are scams, or a waste of time, should you say something, or let them enjoy their bliss?

I see a LOT of ads here that are MLM, which I know are popular right now, but I also know that some of them are bogus, and some are a waste of time. I'm here to make friends as well as share experiences, so do I say something, or just let it go?

  • I must not be up on the lingo what is MLM? Whatever it is I would say that if you know that it is truly a scam, I would say something... If its something that just didn't work for you but may work for someone else given the right circumstances then I would live and let live. :)

  • MLM stands for Multi Level marketing...it is where you get a "work at home job" but you have to recruit people, and they have to recruit people and so on. It used to be called a pyramid scheme
