There are a lot of scams on the internet, right now. Everywhere you look there are misrepresentative sites and adverts that would never survive if they were subject to a nations advertising regulations, such is the internet, it is a web of lies and deceit. It was undoubtedly a change from nations to a one world government the day that Joe Public gained access to the web.
Because of the gaping hole in regulatory facility to deal with nationless websites hosted all over the World, it is important to be self-regulating. If you are a scammer selling nonsense to people by illicit means, your website and domain providers are by far the most culpable force concerning your operation.
With bearing this in mind, we are going to have a look at what actually happens when you try and report an obvious scam to certain operators, analyse their behaviours and see where their duty really lies.
Today we are looking at Might Networks. They are a provider of webspace that operates web platforms that anyone can create. In other words, websites for people who couldn't be bothered to find out how to create a website. Another American business propped-up by funding that has not business because funding isn't business, it is charity. So anyone can come along and make a website in seconds and push that material on the public of the world with no comeback to the author, host, funder or regulator, because there is no regulator other than Mighty Networks.
Now the pages we registered an abuse report concern a scam that uses a British celebrity famous for financial advice, apparently, although we have never encountered him ourselves. His name is Martin Lewis, and he founded the website MoneySavingExpert.com.
In the UK the main broadcasting service is operated on a socialist principle whereby the public pays a mandatory subscription to support the service and that service is, without doubt, one of the finest in the world. Because of this, the BBC must be seen as impartial, as it is not taking a cut of anything that it may mention on the air. It is by recalling this simple set of rules that we can unequivocally state that the Martin Lewis BBC British Bitcoin Profit site is a scam. We do not need to present any further evidence, we can see it straight away and without doubt.
Because of these simple truths, we would expect a hosting service like Mighty Networks to be very keen to remove sites that make them look ridiculous or greed to the point that their service becomes a public menace. To this end we sent a simple message highlighting the Martin Lewis Scams on their service, expecting a hasty and apologetic withdrawal of the pages. Instead we received the following:

Hello Justin - Thank you for reaching out!
Please further explain why is this a scam, and who's been scammed so we can look for violations to our Our Policies, Data Security Setup, and Privacy Promise.
I'll be attentive to your response and happy to further assist you with this.
Have a great one,
We'll respond to you as soon as we can! In the meantime, check out our Help Centre.
So where should we turn to with this problem? How can we be sure of this being a scam, well let's take another look:
Well firstly, they should be able to look-up in their own records and ascertain that they are not the hosts of the BBC News website, that is a simple, internal process that can be carried out without warrant or cavalry. The next step would be to communicate with their client, who is presumably paying them a huge salary for this level of loyalty in the face of such a fraud, and find out why they are citing their own Mighty Networks page as a page of the biggest news network in the UK. They should definitely require that this be clarified before someone reproduces such a page, suggesting that their internal regulatory services represent a farce of the most hilarious ineptitude. What would the funders say if their generosity was to be ridiculed with such necessity?
It would also be a sad day for the Internet as a whole. To be able to show an information superhighway as a hive of stupidity and gluttony with not regard for truth, justice, or even any idea of law or society would indeed be a sad day for all concerned.
The same author then goes on to publicise that Martin Lewis' new British Bitcoin Profit service is condoned with the same veracity by the Telegraph Newspaper:
Which, although less ridiculous, as the Telegraph is a profit making business, this newspaper is a subscription service and is therefore not accessible to the public with paying said subscription, rendering this advert impossible. It is also another example of a situation that Mighty Networks could establish as a fraud simply by verifying against their own sales records, that they do not host the Daily Telegraph website. Either way this fraud is one costing UK inhabitants millions every year and you would think that such a company would wish to avoid the association with criminals.
What is the future if truth is completely lost? Dictatorship in the guise of democracy, but we think that we may've been there for some time...
