How long, oh Lord, how long?

The question the public should be asking of the FTC:

How long does it take for the FTC to act against an illegal pyramid scheme?

The apparent answer is:

Just as long as it takes for the pyramid to run out of steam.

What did SkyBiz need to do to get the FTC to notice? Say "SkyBiz is an illegal pyramid scheme based on the erroneous premise that anti-pyramid laws don't apply on the internet"?

Well, for what it's worth, the FTC finally took action against SkyBiz:

To its credit, the Oklahoma Department of Securities filed an action against SkyBiz in 1998, but the final action approved by the court was of limited effect.
