Dictator Rick Schwartz shows his true colors

later its mentioned
Quote:
Due to disruption of proceedings at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. caused by certain persons, groups or companies arranging private parties or gatherings while events are occurring, the Board voted unanimously that any function, party or gathering by written or verbal invitation by any person, group or company before 9:30P.M. on the first, second or third full day of T.R.A.F.F.I.C. shall be strictly prohibited and any violators shall be excluded from any future T.R.A.F.F.I.C. CONFERENCE AND TRADE SHOW. Sponsors pay to have full attendance at Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner and it is not fair to them to have competing functions small or large before 9:30 P.M.
Pretty much saying that other non affiliated traffic parties during the conference are hereby not allowed! Even if they don't take place on the grounds of TRAFFIC? Get a grip dictator Rick Schwartz.

Re: Dictator Rick Schwartz shows his true colors

Rather vague, isn't it? I guess you can't verbally ask some woman out to lunch or dinner there or you'll be banned...?

Hmmm... I'd take the risk.

I think it is ok. They simply want to protect Fee Paying Sponsors benefit.

So if they cannot be bribed with free meals, then you have to kick them of bed, frog march them through the showers, forcibly shave them all and then cuff them to the chairs to get your message across?

Have to say, all this seems totally in character to me.

Mercifully, I think I have been permanently banned anyway.

I've got nothing against the guy, he's a great salesman, but until he learns how to spell IDN I won't be following him anywhere, sorry.

Re: Dictator Rick Schwartz shows his true colors

I suggest you educate yourselves with what has happened with Oversee vs Moniker and Traffic, before you continue further.

Furthermore, the sniplet quoted above says: "The Board voted..."
Rick is on the board but is not the board.

Go develop some of your eye dee ens instead.

excuse me? There are many threads about this already on domainstate/dnforum/namepros. They all come to the same conclusion.... Rick is a Sc*muck

Read the link before you bash.....

1. Letter is sent out by Howard Neu and Rick Schwartz
2. WADND website backs whats said by them with "new rules" to take effect to ban violators from future T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conferences. Guess who owns the conference? Rick and Howard!!! WADND obviously represents the interests of Rick and Howard.

Was I bashing? Care to point me to the right direction?

The only bashing going on here is "Rick-bashing", which I really don't care about as it seems to be a recurring theme around here every time things are slow.

I merely suggested learning the actual facts before casting opinions.

Re: Dictator Rick Schwartz shows his true colors

Ask yourselves, whether a SANE person, who really anticipates this:

Quote:
Additionally, our primary focus will be on investing. Domain owners are investors. When you look at the ballroom at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. and see who is sitting there, we anticipate that the persons in that room handle investments in the billions of dollars. If they can’t recognize the value of domain names, then I have confidence that they will recognize a room filled with investors totaling many billions of dollars. Greed will set them free!....

Even if Madison Ave is not ready, I can guarantee you that Wall Street is. Some accuse Madison Ave of being out of touch with the digital era. There have been stories written about it. But you asked the right question…the only thing we can do is bring it to their “Doorstep.”
is really going to risk it all by subjecting such an elite audience to this:

Quote:
Then there are some that plan to show up in New York, that won’t pay the admission fee and think they can set up shop and do business at our expense. That only disrupts the show and cheats both sponsors and attendees. I’ll tell you right now, don’t do it! It is unacceptable and I am going to get on stage and name names at the show if this happens. It’s not fair to us and it certainly is not fair to the industry. When sponsors or attendees cheat like this I often wonder if they would cheat on the payouts or traffic?
Rick has done an awful lot to raise awareness of domaining in the past, and Domainsponsor has sponsored a lot of it in the past. It is really time to start asking, who is best equipped to start taking things forward, and who is likely to put the needs of the industry before personal greed? Frankly, I think it is time to pack up the unicycle and head on home!

How is this obvious to you? I did read the thread and it's just smoke while the actual fire is burning elsewhere.

People making uneducated statements and others passing judgement based on the previous is just that: Folks talking out their asses with no clue of what's really going on.

Anyway, to each his own.
