Comments:While I applaud your desire to protect people from "scam" businesses, I would hope that you would not unintentionally cripple legitimate small business people who make their living in direct sales businesses. I implore you to take the time to familiarize yourselves with the Direct Selling Association and their strict guidelines. I have been an Independent Demonstrator with Stampin' Up! for the past 8 years. I have watched this business change people's lives for the better time and time again. This direct selling company adheres to the strictest ethical and moral code I have seen in 3 decades of working in any field! Please do not use broad based language that would hurt those of us who make our living in legitimate direct sales businesses. Thank you.
