Portfolio Brains, LLC can eat my dick (Must read)

Postby Guildmaster Van on Sun Jun 15, 2008 5:29 am

When my domain name expired in April, Portfolio Brains, LLC aka Assfuckers Inc. picked up the rights to WhiteHydra.com less than two days are the expiry, thereby fucking me out of my own domain name until at least April 27, 2009 according to the whois on it. And that's not a guarantee I'll even get it back - those moist turds have rights to renew first.

Basically, these limp dicks have automated systems buying domain names that have had a fair amount of traffic going to them and offer to resell them back at an inflated price (Like, twelve times the price I originally paid for it)

I'm using this post to warn any of y'all with your own .com names not to let them expire unless you want some greedy dumbshit American company to put you over a barrel.

Now, if you excuse me, I'm going outside to RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGE

Yeah, there's always a danger of this happening. I try to renew within a month of expiration because of it.

greedy dumbshit American company


Damn those Americans! They are the only ones vile enough to pull such a stunt.

I make a habit of renewing my domain a month in advance. The approach of renewal time is almost always signified by an increase in traffic from bots and whois

Wow, that's a lot of names. Looks like I'll wait and see what happens in 2009 :\

Don't know. We should get a pool going on it. I think it'll point to a Brazilian midget porn site. If it doesn't point to a Scientology propaganda site, of course.

There's lots of utilities available on the webs that allow you to watch for domains, really. Kinda like eBay auctions. You should give it a shot.

Yeah, I was looking into what my original host offered. It'll cost me a bit more than it would normally, but if it works I'll pay less than what these guys are extorting.

That is a pretty dirty trick.

Thank God for GoDaddy. Their commercials may be stupid and their interface may be confusingly set up, but at least they warn you before stuff expires and have auto renew features.

A friend of mine continually renews pimpette.ca for me as a yearly birthday present XD

Even so, I get sent a couple of reminders like two weeks and then one week in advance. Always helpful to set that sort of thing up if you can.

I'm just curious as to why you want to compound your problems by having them eat you penis as well. It seems counter-productive to be left without a phallus right after they stole (it's legal, but definitely not moral) your domain name. There are various other things you ought to have offered for them to consume - excrement being popular, clothing apparel being another.

I wonder if there are internet vigilantes one can contact in order to initiate DoS attacks or other such revenge tactics. Maybe unload a dump truck full of manure on the steps of their headquarters...
