Correct, Richard3! In this day and age, it is difficult to impossible to hide anything anymore. Ackman pointed out Herbalife's flaws, Avon and Tupperware left the DSA and basically condemned the organization, claiming that they only cater to the largest MLM's, serve their interests, and seek to preserve status quo (endless-chain recruitment scheme). The VEMMA fiasco definitively disproved MLM's claim that failed distributors are really just customers.If you want some fun reading, go to They chronicle pretty all of the negative activities of various MLM's.

The lies and half-truths that MLM defenders would always default to in order to justify the abysmal financial figures and failure rates in MLM can be easily dis-proven with a quick google search nowadays.
