Sale of Tights.co.uk

There is some speculation that the sale of tights.co.uk on Domainlore.uk was not legitimate. I know both parties involved and it was a 100% genuine sale, as far as I know, they don't know each other. Even if they did, there is no chance they would have colluded or anything…

Goodbye Twitter

I have finally decided to call it a day on Twitter - @GreyWingUK is no more, closing my account after 3 or 4 long years. The final straw was their censorship of Katie Hopkins, as many of you know I don't do censorship. Continuing on Twitter meant I was in…
In my quest to show that we are in the second wave of Covid-19, I've found more anecdotal evidence. This time the English Cricket Team caught it in South Africa in December 2019. My first story related to Covid-19 being in the UK in our autumn can be found here…

.uk rights and fake tags

I've not been following the .uk launch all that closely, I know there is a little bit of upset at the launch process. It is something I'm not getting involved in, and I didn't even sign the recent petition against the release process. What I did notice though, is that…
This is a heads up for those of you that run make a bit extra by hosting Adsense adverts and how they are defrauding publishers. The background of our gripe is this. Every day we see how much we have earned through people clicking on adverts that we host on…
Why does Acorn Domains delete interesting threads that protect certain members and their own interests? Like the one, they just deleted yesterday that revealed a significant flaw in Nominet's drop catching system? The Nominet DAC Flaw. That is what happened yesterday. Someone revealed the domain catching flaw and like a…
I'm watching people who I once respected in this industry lose their credibility by referring to the revoke Article 50 Brexit petition which is on the Governments website. We are in an industry where the power of bots is well known, it is what powers the drop catching world. All…
