'M' Words

Here are some key terms that you may stumble into through your day to day searching for the right opportunities. I've noticed that these almost sci-fi sounding terms pepper the internet, especially when it comes to money making splash pages, and other sites of the like. Oddly enough, they appear to be 'M' words.

I think that these terms are used for a few reasons. I could be either right or wrong, but there are reasons that have little or nothing to do with the opportunity or product being pitched. You've seen them... And if you haven't yet, you will. Take a few minutes to review some sites that claim to make you money online. Eventually you will run into any one, if not all of these terms.

Multiplexes, Matrix, Maximizers, Multipliers, Mega

Here are the definitions that I picked from Websters Online Dictionary. Read them for yourself and see if they somehow fit or make sense to where they are being applied.

Multiplex: being or relating to a system of transmitting several messages or signals simultaneously on the same circuit or channel

a: rectangular array of mathematical elements (as the coefficients of simultaneous linear equations) that can be combined to form sums and products with similar arrays having an appropriate number of rows and columns

b: something resembling a mathematical matrix especially in rectangular arrangement of elements into rows and columns

c : an array of circuit elements (as diodes and transistors) for performing a specific function

1 : to increase to a maximum
2: to make the most of
3: to find a maximum value of
4: to increase the size of (a window) to fill an entire computer screen

Multiplier and Mega are pretty self descriptive.
Now, do any of these 'M' Words make much sense in the way they are being used on these ads? Maybe. But my opinion is that these are words like downline, multi  level, and network marketing, dressed up and cooler sounding. Why take part in Network Marketing if you could Join a Matrix? Or try to build a downline when you could play your hand in a vast Multiplex?!

Why the camouflage? 
Since it was recognized that there is money to be made online (mid to late 90's), there have been so many scams attached to the original terminology. When most people hear or read the term 'MLM' they get a bellyache. Is that fair? No. But it's still true.

Are there dirty cops out there? Yes. Are they all dirty? No. Same idea. But if someone has dealings with a dirty cop, will they so easily trust the police again? Not if they are approached in the same way...
I think I made my point.
