What is the deal with triplers and pyramids?
Do you guys host triplers and pyramids? Aren't these illegal in the u.s.? What do you guys know about these cash schemes? And what do you know about the responsibility of the host for these schemes?
I googled it and searched the FBI site but couldn't find anything related to Web hosts and our liability. What do you think?

As to the legalitty of it I am unsure if it is infact illegal, but I know most datacenters have in thier TOS that they are not allowed.

Agreed, illegal here in the US and don't host them... Do a quick Google search for more information. I'm guessing you've done that already. I'd put it in your TOS and not allow due to possible legal complications.

Yes.. I would definitely not host them. We've had a few sign-up under regular looking domains, then found out what they were doing. Terminated their accounts when we found out.. definitely a TOS violation.
