Why is yahoo supporting MLM's by allowing "Authors" to post "stories" that are just links to their store items.
Multi-level marketing (MLM's) are predatory and exploitative business that take advantage of uninformed and vulnerable people. Enticing them with potential to earn off what you sell and to recruit people under you that can sell stuff and allow you to earn off of those items. MLM's have a large base of people at the very bottom earning very little, and each echelon above is smaller but earning more from those below them, until you reach the very top where one small company makes massive profits off of exploiting everyone under them. It forms a shape a kind of pyramid if you will.
