The 75,000 Dollar Web Site

This is HILARIOUS!!!!! Today, we were informed of a little exchange on the Godlike Productions forum.

There’s a discussion about the Cassiopaeacult.com domain name.

Well, there is a certain Anonymous Coward who was interested in buying it (I’m not going to link to it – you can go find the discussion if you like swimming in manure):

How much does it cost to keep a url going? Is it too late to pick it up again, don’t know how these things work.

And then, the following frenzy:

Domain Name: CASSIOPAEACULT.COM
Registrar: GODADDY.COM, INC.
Whois Server: whois.godaddy.com
Referral URL: [link to registrar.godaddy.com]
Name Server: NS63.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
Name Server: NS64.DOMAINCONTROL.COM
Status: clientDeleteProhibited
Status: clientRenewProhibited
Status: clientTransferProhibited
Status: clientUpdateProhibited
Updated Date: 22-mar-2011
Creation Date: 05-mar-2005
Expiration Date: 05-mar-2013

See date, something strange ?

———————————–

FIRST

– CASSIOPAEACULT.COM
– CASSIOPAEACULT.ORG
– CASSIOPAEACULT.NET

Create on same day, so same person, not expired : VB

If there are no site that is due to the host.
I look if I can find something about it…

———————————–

SECOND

– CASSIOPAEA-CULT.COM
– CASSIOPAEA-CULT.ORG
– CASSIOPAEA-CULT.NET
– CASSIOPAEA-CULT.INFO
– CASSIOPAEACULT.INFO
-> same person : Ark!

These areas are poorly configured – to increase the power of webcasting – it must be made an address translation, not a redirect.

There is not even good webmasters at the castle.

In the current state, 5 domains for a single asset, it is useless and is money out of the window.

Wasteful with money from followers…. QED

———————————–

I’m not very technical with websites and domains etc, but are you saying that Ark is cyber-squatting? And that Ark has set up some sort pf proxy redirection to lead folks away from the real site? And he messed it up by squatting in too many sites? Charging the SNOTT members for his laziness?

If he has done anything illegal, report it?

You mean it’s illegal to buy domains now?!?!?!  LOL!

Figures, he is extremely slimy, crafty, untrustworthy – the epiome of a backstabber, with no morals or ethics whatsoever. Just like his wife, a match made in hades.

———————————–

The cassiopaeacult.com domain name is owned. Someone bought it and they are trying to auction it off. The current asking price via godaddy is $75,000. If it was a matter of registering and hosting I know someone who could have it up, as it was, in less then 24 hours but 75k is pretty out there all things considered.

Wow, can I get that guy’s number? I mean, if he can get an already constructed web site up and running on a domain in LESS THAN 24 HOURS, I wanna hire him!

LMAO!

Anyway, that’s probably a bit out of order, but you get the idea. In short, some people over there are claiming that WE bought the domain name and are selling it for $75,000.

Just one problem:

The domain formerly expired on March 5, 2011 (which matches up with: “Creation Date: 05-mar-2005”). Domains are registered in multiples of 1 year. There was then a 30-day grace period where no one could buy, and the former owners could renew it. I know because I tried to buy it myself. I was going to offer it back to the GLP crowd for free. Seriously. I mean, without that web site and GLP, what are they? What have they got? Nothing! I just don’t like to see anybody suffer.

According to WHOIS:

Updated Date: 22-mar-2011
Creation Date: 05-mar-2005
Expiration Date: 05-mar-2013

That means that most likely, before the 30-day grace period ended, the former owner renewed the domain for another 2 years. Then, they put it up for sale for $75,000. Or maybe $70. Seems they can’t make up their minds one way or another, but the price I see on GoDaddy is $75,000.

And that poor Anonymous Coward is obviously so deluded that he can’t even see what’s going on. He was just SURE he was gonna get that domain and put his own Laura-defaming site up. And then maybe he would have a chip in the Big Game.

I feel for him, really.

In any case, the idea that Ark of all people would buy that particular domain name and try to sell it for $75k is totally insane. Who in their right mind would want to buy it, except for us and the VB/Stormy/Anonymous Coward crowd?

Nobody.

As for this comment:

…to increase the power of webcasting – it must be made an address translation, not a redirect

All I can say is: Dude, you just keep doing things your way and see where it gets you.

As for me, I’m going to go “increase the power of my webcasting” – whatever the hell that means.

Transcribing and Defaming On Godlikeproductions

Additional comments to “Reductio ad absurdum” by Laura added July 2005

It has recently been brought to my attention that there is an “ex-Cass Group” member who is posting rather libelous remarks about us on Internet Discussion boards. A reader sent these comments to me, and there is really only one remark that has any significant bearing on our work, and which I would like to address, the rest is just simply opinion (libelously written, at that) which seems to have developed from the singular problem of perception. Here is what was said:

From: OPie: I was also one of those who transcribed the original sessions. And, yes, when they were published on the website they had been changed. One was changed considerably. She had been charged with this by others before, and until I saw it happen first-hand, I didn’t believe it was true. I figured she changed punctuation or corrected things, but that’s not what happened with the sessions I transcribed. […]

Now the problem with this is that if she changed the two that I transcribed, how many more of the sessions were tampered with? If you find one piece of work that’s bogus, how can you trust the rest? […]

Allow me to give some background context in which to address this accusation. Continue reading
