    finding out real names of posters

    Safesys,

    You're in the middle of the oak barrel at the scotch refinery. You know everyone's names. I don't and I don't have time to hunt them down on the 10 forums I participate in. I understand your enthusiasm to promote your forum, it's a great forum. However, we all can't investigate everyone who posts to see if they're just a bunch of heavy-posting wannabees or someone who actually has some influence in the industry. I don't want to get into a discussion with some jerkoff member (oops, no member of DS would ever be a jerkoff) and waste my time.

    Why don't you post a page on your forum that REVEALS all the real names and occupations of your forum members? That might get rid of the wannabees who post loudmouthed rebukes but have no pedigree. It would also save time for your more influential members from responding to idiotic comments made by wannabees. What say you?

    A bad domain is a bad domain, you don't need to know the ins and outs a business plan to see that - trying to convince people who actually make money from domains that you do is a bit silly really.

    I really don't get your obsession with real names either - many people have been known under their usernames for the best part of a decade. You should get with the online programme instead of trying to overlay traditional middle management mentality onto something I don't think you have any real understanding of.

    Because we're not all self publicizing wannabes who care what other people think about us?

    - seriously dotplanners get a grip mate. You're starting to sound like some kind of paranoid psycho demanding names and addresses. Why not stick to the original post and discuss how well these domains are doing. Also what actually makes you think YOU'RE important enough to talk to some of us? We might consider you the wannabe if you have less than 8 figures in your bank. Luckily we're not as shallow as you appear to be and the forum is available to everyone regardless of whether they are unemployed, a domain consultant, millionaires, etc I really wonder why you even bother coming back here if we are so terrible......

    ok well as this is in the suggestions thread I suggest not stopping at just names and occupations (seriously what kind of weirdo thinks occupations are so important?!). I think we should all provide the following:
    Full Name, Full Address, Height, Weight, Race, Yearly turnover and profit, a full list of domains owned. Anybody not fulfilling a certain criteria (to be decided upon by King Domain Consultant) should not be allowed to post. Failing that have some kind of 'pedigree' ladder where people are not allowed to talk to people above them.

    Good grief you have some nerve. Enthusiasm to promote the site? Give me a break.

    We have a robots.txt eclude in an attempt to stop the se's indexing the site.

    Appreciate the thought eric, but for me at least it's kind of nice to be more of a "word of mouth" site as that helps the signal to noise ratio.

    From our rules: Likewise, we do not condone members spamming other sites promoting DomainState.


    We have never advertised this site nor pumped traffic to it. If we find a site or are notified of one that is scraping content from this site and replicating it on theirs, we request them to delete the content and desist from the practice.

    Like I said, give me a break.

    it's really short sighted to write people off just because they don't have "influence" or "pedigree".

    Sometimes new blood can bring new ideas and new perspectives - and discussing these things can lead to tangents that can help in other areas.

    Because safesys lives in a country where they actually have data protection legislation.

    He has no need to require that information, and therefore has no right to ask for it to be divulged in the first place.

    Things are different, of course, in 'the land of the free'. Which is why targetted phishing scams are likely to become more effective in the short to medium term, until people wise-up a bit...

    I think that's tangential enough - would you believe it? Tangential.com/net/org/info/us/co.uk/cc/cn/de hae all been registered....

    FYI, Jay of DomainTools already has names, addresses and lists of domains owned.

    It would appear that dotplanners is just looking for a list of pre-qualified sales prospects.

    Maybe we should all be required to register our own "I Am" domains.

    IamChad.com...

    So he knows who we really are.
    Your domains are never completely worthless. They can always be used as a bad example.
