OK, question, what do you think the Whitehouse should pay for the former porn site, Whitehouse.com?

Re: Shirley

Although the saying, "Every man has two countries - his own and France" has been attributed to Jefferson many times, this exact wording has never been found in his writings. It has been suggested that it may be a paraphrase of this passage from Jefferson's Autobiography:

"So ask the travelled inhabitant of any nation, In what country on earth would you rather live?&—Certainly in my own, where are all my friends, my relations, and the earliest & sweetest affections and recollections of my life. Which would be your second choice? France."

Re: Probably won't matter much

Well, if you are looking to save about half your money instead of paying that much, try NameSilo and use the coupon code DN to get a dollar off the normal 8.88 price (It is currently 6.99 so you can reg a name now for 5.99) and then here is a tip for all the people that are able to do it, RENEW your domain names for AS LONG AS YOU CAN! I have some of my 170 names renewed for 10 years. That saves you from having to worry about these price jumps every year.

UK taxman has domain typo-squatter stripped of HMRC web addresses

Joseph Slabaugh

whois foundation.

The name Whois Foundation suggests it is just a service that all registrars offer as a free. The service does not own the domain names, that's silly. It is just a mask of who actually owns it.

Is this an article from the future?

"Details emerged after his 20124 arrest..." That is a long time into the future.

Re: Not sure if they can make this stick....

It records nothing. But the use of a recording device SHOULD be allowed. Not sure what they are afraid of someone seeing.

Funny, you think the son is the same as the father.

Lady Gaga loses squatting complaint

Domain name owner

I own a few 100 names and a few semi-celebs' names etc, but I would rather have an autographed CD then a 1000 dollars from anyone asking to have them.

She could use it for a non-profit!

Suppose she wanted to start a charity? Many singers and celebs use .org for their charities that they use for tax write offs....

Thumb Down

American here

I am not from the UK, but agree about the fines being useless, but they could just use Google Docs, and control who has access to each document or spreadsheet.

Why are you picking on people?

I am a Conservative, and I am NOT against him. I believe he has done a lot of good, even if the government wants to make him look bad.

Walmart and guns

They do sell guns where I live. Which is surprising, but I was just there the other day and saw a few on display. But not as many as down the road where there is a "Fin Feather Fur Outfitters" about 1/2 mile from the Walmart.

So now we should stand by the gun sales dept and watch who buys guns, and report them to the authorities.

Re: mysterious company

I was thinking the same thing as far as this possibly being some LLC just like Escom, and maybe even one owned by Mike Mann.

All of world's biggest firms hit by typosquatting

Joseph Slabaugh


I don't get drunk, although I do drink from time to time... But I do have 4 kids to support. I also have generic names, so the squatting is only part of my business. I have been in business since 2000.
