Alticor and Wikipedia

Alticor loves Wikipedia :)

What is Alticor?

Alticor is parent company of world biggest Multi-level Marketing companies, Amway and Quixtar.

What is Wikipeida?

Wikipedia is a free-content encyclopedia that anyone can edit.

What one has to do with other?

Well, In Wikiepdia, there is an entry about Quixtar, a company of Alticor.com. Alticor is constantly editing that page like it's their own advertisement. But it's not. Wiki purpose is to give neutral information, not ads. This information may include some thing that doesn't look good from alticor's point of view. But as it is the part of information about Quixtar, so it should be present in Wikipedia.

Here is a screen cap of Wikipedia history regarding Quixtar. Look at the difference of edits by the IP 167.23.0.90. Which, by the way is Alticor.inc. In case it got changed, here is the screen cap of whois. That's how it maps. Grand rapids eh!

I don't have a problem with it, lets just look out and see if it stay Neutral? Wikipedia is an encyclodedia editable by ANY one.

Update 1:

LawBlawg - Of Hands and Cookie Jars

Good job lawDawg.

Update 2:

Latest history edits. Alticor is just modifying entries and removing any link they don't like on Wikipedia like it's their Dad's property or something. They screwed with Google first, now Wikipedia. Any one wanna complain against Alticor to Wikipedia folks?

You are stupid for not joining this business in the first place. The gas used to travel is worth it. You probably hate it because jobs are the way to go. You want to work till your 65. You like waking up by the alarm clock and most of all you wanna die broke and not become financially free.

Wow, I wonder if "anonymous" is in the Alticor cult....

Financially free? The average Alticor sucker...erm...employee makes what? $70 a month?

Is that enough for you to be financially free?

I worked for Global Expectations, an MLM scheme in Atlanta, for 6 days.

It occurred to me that unless I brought in more people to manage, and sold ridiculous amounts of products, I was going to be forever stuck on the minimum wage side of the "minimum wage or commission" pay structure.

...and who the hell wants to have to wear a suit to work every day to make minimum wage? Hell, you can't afford suits on minimum wage. Ask me how I know.

All I'm saying is that it takes a special kind of person to make it in those kind of businesses.

...and me? I'm not a slick-haired, fast-talking huckster.
