DNForum pulls the plug on IDN domain sales

We have no way to validate that what someone posts is actually the correct IDN for that term, therefore we are discontinuing the sales sections for IDN domains.

didn't take it as a joke, just decided to reserve my comment for something of greater importance.

Which essentially means he's dumping all the dross on this forum, smart move. (I'm sure the mods here will be on it in a flash )
Although some seem to have found their way here already.

in one way I guess its good for us although our red bull expenditure probably just went up considerably for a few weeks. Maybe we should overnight the reaper a couple of cases

Re: DNForum pulls the plug on IDN domain sales

If DNForum allowed constructive "comments" in the IDN Sales Threads then it would take care of the problem he was worried about.

Even after many people complained about some of the names being sold they did nothing about it. Nor would they allow any comments in the sales thread, the one or two I posted got removed by the MODs.

Seems it was easier to throw the baby out with the bathwater. Or throw the phishers in with the ornery reaper phish.

Yes,any comment on any of the threads was immediately removed. Reports to mods were ignored.they even deleted a warning thread. If the mods were not competent to do the job then find somebody that was.

This is an extreme measure throwing a potentially huge market away because of,ignorance? incompetence? apathy? what?

Changing the name to DNFNOIDN.com? Wonder if it's available?

Re: DNForum pulls the plug on IDN domain sales

I know Adam regged 1000s of IDNs back several years ago. He seemed very optimistic about them from what we had talked about at the time and then added the idn section to the forum, so it must be strictly a management and oversight issue. It's a complex market, but once its understood and you can tell the gold from the crap it's well worth the effort.

The explanation sounds a joke though. It's a declaration intellectual bankruptcy.

@Wot
I'm pretty sure this is a result of all the noise you were making. I'm sorry to say that most of your efforts with monikerblog seem to bring about unintended results. You were complaining about Sedo selling scam IDNs. Result: We got more stupid IDN warnings on Sedo. Then you complained about IDN scams on DNForum. Result: they ban IDN sales on their forum. Ironically the worst scammers of Sedo and DNForum now come to this place.

Do you know Sheldon Cooper?

I have no regrets.There are now very few,if any crap IDN on Sedo. The description,well tell them,they take a certain amount of notice if enough noise is made.

DNF,stupid decision by the management,but their choice to drop a large potential audience & business.

Scammers may well come here but how long do you think they would last?

I prefer to do something as opposed to nothing which appears to be the accepted norm in this business.

My theory is that maybe I will go out with a big bang but only time will tell.

At least they confess being hopeless.

I would love to see Adam's IDN portfolio if he can't validate anything.

BTW: How do they "validate" foreign language domains in ASCII?

Yeah, shooting around with a gun in a room filled with gas sounds like a great idea. At least you're doing something.

The only question that matters is: Are we better off now?

Couldn't care less about DNF but my IDNs at Sedo now appear even more "irregular" than before. Potential buyers must think all IDNs are used for scamming.

Don't get me wrong. Nothing personal, but I don't think we are better off.
