    He's charging 8 bucks to sell the "ricky.mysitelol" etc.

    The thing is, he isn't even selling the site. In his disclaimer, he states he's just giving you a reminder email :rofl:

    Anyone else see how unethical this is?

    He isn't doing the proper procedures to make sure ccTLD domains are within their countries location and stuff.

    And apparently all sorts of domains, which are already registered and live, are still available.... include "google.com"

    :rofl:

    What's your take on this?

    Not to mention that the disclaimer says nothing about the website itself :rofl:
    If this ain't a scam, i don't know what is.

    I can't believe OT is allowing such blatant scams to advertise in a sticky thread, and no one is even allowed to criticise or complain.

    What's to stop someone selling tickets in the Nigerian Lottery at $10 a pop in a sticky thread? There have to be some more guidelines laid down...

    SO basically you pay to get an email if a certain extension is added?

    So if I want bam.fingersintheputty if ICANN decides to add .fingersinthepussy as another TLD along with .com, .net etc I get notification? lol

    If so yes it does seem like a scam, not sure on the exact legalities though.

    His domain is just an affiliate link to another site, I believe.

    I would post that before you get all of WML clicking his shit, making him money.

    I wasn't trolling it either, just wasn't very clear I guess. I just said "I don't like this idea" or something. Wasn't aimed at the TS or his scam, just meant I didn't like the idea of being able to register custom extensions

    Yeah, I don't know about all that.

    Hey, give me 8.99 to register any domain. If it's ever really available, I'll email you to actually register with a real registrar.
