Phishing domains openly being sold on NamePros

I can't believe he gets away with this. Obviously selling to people who don't know what IDNs are.

Disgraceful.

Ah... I comment on this...
of course he is fooling people. But this is still a grey area, these are legal domains, no need to be upset about it. this is how human species (a.k.a. people) learn, through OWN trial and error. Nobody will convince them to NOT try another foolishness. So, give up...

Re: Phishing domains openly being sold on NamePros

I wouldn't buy these domains (or sell them) but I also wouldn't describe them all as "mixed script".

For instance, іе . com uses only letters from the Ukrainian alphabet, and ЅМЅ . com uses letters only from the Macedonian alphabet (if I'm reading the Wikipedia articles correctly). On the other hand, іОЅ . com really is a mixture, because і and Ѕ, although both cyrillic, don't appear together in any alphabet.

But would you have any trouble describing them as phishing domains designed only to fool the unwary?

Not sure if I'd call them "phishing". Fool the unwary? Yes.

If it were up to me, all Cyrillic domains sold in English-language venues (SEDO, NamePros, etc) would be labelled as "Cyrillic alphabet domains", not just IDN.
