Wow, this is not that big or important of a website in the grand scheme of things, so any press that takes up this story would have to be having a really slow news day.

But, overall, this all sucks and it's nice to have this little corner of the Internet still going.

I realize it's possible to temporarily "steal" anything from a financial identity to a parking space. But it isn't clear to me how or why any third-party is able to provide a more convincing case (for ownership) then the owners listed.
As a point of information it might be helpful to know how the system is flawed and/or why the safeguards are so lax. Simply put, it isn't clear to me that ownership was transferred so I don't understand how someone is able to hold your site hostage while all proof of ownership (care-custody-control) rests with "you".
You've missed a few things. The info you seek is posted in plain sight here in the forum. It'll help you understand.
Yes, I seem to have only found enough info to be surprised. That is, I did read: "Someone hacked into my godaddy account last night and stole our ttd domains. ...However, I am now dealing with godaddy to get our domains back."
So, I wrote "I realize it's possible to temporarily "steal" anything from a financial identity to a parking space. But it isn't clear to me how or why any third-party is able to provide a more convincing case (for ownership) then the owners listed."
See, I understand every domain is at risk for temporary tampering-theft. But contrary to the belief that "Possession is 99% of the law", establishing proof of ownership means that domain theft is 'domain borrowing' at best. I have to show "proof" with every transaction...
So yes, I would be surprised if I lacked the means to prove (convince) my host or registrar that I can meet the test of "ownership".
Face it, if stealing domains and holding them hostage for ransom was easy? There are domains that are worth more than a few thousand bucks.
Yes, vandalism isn't too tough but I suggest someone think through making a buck by asking ransom for a domain they don't own...That scheme would fold like Sears tent in less than 24 hours.
But I do own a bridge in New York if anyone is interested?

It looks great but they don't have a mac equivalent. I'll have to do some googling and see what is out there.

Apparently not, as this has been going on for days now.

Re: Our domains have been stolen

All I can say is WOW.

Sorry for the troubles your having Lynne, you shouldn't have to deal with this crap.

I have read other similar hijackings with godaddy registered domains, so I'll be moving the two domains I have with godaddy now just in case.

Re: Our domains have been stolen

See above post:

...so it will grow into a huge, and very painful infection brought on by some new virulent pathogen, unknown to physicians and toxicologists, that will disfigure him (the ugliest of his siblings) for the rest of his life, to the point that no woman (or man) would even consider fucking him if it meant his genes could possibly be passed on to some ungodly offspring that would undoubtedly sicken any attending physician who had the misfortune to birth the little bastard.

Oh yeah,
Thank you Lynne for all you have done. No one deserves the sort of suffering you have endured, except for the bottom feeder who inflicted this mess.

Thank you! I've heard of this application, but had never really looked into it because I thought I was so nice and secure! But, I'll be checking it out now.

Re: Our domains have been stolen

Wow!

Haven't posted in a while (other than rejecting Alex's PMs offering me free man sex if I come back to The Lounge ).

I don't understand how a domain gets "stolen" but I won't trouble anyone for an answer. Whoever did this will get theirs.

Just glad to see there's a site again. Good luck Lynne... keep your chin up!


p.s. Happy 4/20 everyone. Go get rasta'd...
