Re: IDN's are bullshit. Especially .com - especially Russian

So just why exactly is this his problem?

Nobody much is talking about them, there are that many sales going on, what exactly is the issue, apart from perhaps missing out?

Re: IDN's are bullshit. Especially .com - especially Russian

because everyone likes to be an expert and throwing stones at IDN is easy

this guru does however recommend you invest in idn.de and idn.fr

Re: IDN's are bullshit. Especially .com - especially Russian

"Nobody is going to create a website with a Russian IDN.com !!"

That is definately gonna come back and bite this guy in the ass in the very near future !!



"Local languages in .com, .net or .org are just bullshit !! "

Seriously - this guy is from another planet I think.

Also - whats with the black vest ??

he lost all credibility with me as soon as I saw that vest.

he then lost credibility he didn't have when he advised everyone to invest in an extension that doesn't allow IDN registration.

Who is this guy again?

And that's no vest. That's a classic wife-beater tank top, but in formal black.

All I could make out was "bullsh!t" this "bullsh!t" that. I did post a comment and asked him where I could register hôtel.fr since he recommended idn.fr :D

Re: IDN's are bullshit. Especially .com - especially Russian

What's wrong with FrenchIDN.com, GermanIDN.com, or SpanishIDN.com? I would think these would be the least "risky" investments.

French Web Stats:
624,000,000 pages in French with .com site
475,000,000 pages in French with .fr site

Someone doesn't know all the details.

Re: IDN's are bullshit. Especially .com - especially Russian

I have to say I was a bit taken back with the BigTownRealEstateListings.com domains being pumped at the Lowdown on DNJ. Whatever they are smoking, it has got to be good!

Seeing as they going to left to ferment in their own bile rather than being invited to dinner, wouldn't it be more appropriate to have Pit of Shame?

Re: IDN's are bullshit. Especially .com - especially Russian

Been over two years since I first saw that video. As soon as I loaded up the page and saw that infamous vest - I just closed the window. ( My sides were hurting too much from laughter !! )

Looking at him, you would have to suspect perhaps, it is the wife that would do the beating, if he has one.

Surey, he was not trying to show case that scawny body of his?
