    As we all know, NamesCon is being held on January 11th-14th in 2015. Many will be attending and looking forward to networking with other domain investors, industry leaders, and related companies. In business, networking is a task that should be on your daily to-do list to extend brand awareness within and outside of your primary industry.

    I would like to take this opportunity to extend an invitation for any NamePros members and their guests to reach out and connect one-on-one with our staff that will be attending.

    NamePros staff attending NamesCon:

    For those of you that missed me at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. West May/June in 2014, I am excited to hopefully meet you at NamesCon. Don't miss out on some one-on-one time with me, if you are able to spot me within the crowd using my small avatar picture. I'll be more than happy to talk to you about anything industry related or even random topics about life so that we can get to know one another better.

    A sample of topics that I’ve spoken about at past events:
    • Domain Evaluations
    • NamePros Member Support
    • NamePros Related Suggestions
    • Domain Investing and Flipping
    • Selling Strategies
    • Domain Development
    • Domain Monetization
    • Networking and Cooping
    • Advertising Opportunities
    • Marketing Strategies
    • Seeking End Users
    • The Freedom of Working on Your Watch
    • Branding and Design
    • And More!
    January 2015 is the time to put your 2016 New Year’s resolutions in motion and stop procrastinating. Let's dig our heels into the ground firmly, propelling ourselves forward together as a community of businesspersons and as potential cooperatives striving toward the same goals.

    I wish all of you the best 2015 possible and look forward to collaborating with each and every one of you in person at NamesCon if you’re interested.

    Well, as long as ethically-challenged individuals are part of that "Agenda" in the form of speakers, then there are those of us who will opt out just for that fact. Why in the world would anyone want to attend a domainer convention where one of the speakers is an individual who, while VP of TDNAM auctions at Godaddy, bid against Godaddy's customers. Here, don't take my work, read about it for yourself:

    http://www.netpaths.net/blog/godaddy-unethical-domain-name-registrar/

    http://www.wired.com/2008/06/godaddy-vp-caug/

    http://domainnamewire.com/2008/06/20/expired-domain-services-let-employees-bid-against-customers/

    http://guyro.typepad.com/blog/2008/06/godaddy-vp-caug.html

    Those who participate in sleazy auction practices should be shunned, along with those who hold the scumbags in high esteem by holding them up as shining examples of what we should all aspire to.
    What a joke. Too bad about that, 'cause there are some comparatively virtuous individuals also participating at Namescon. I'm surprised anyone from Namepros would participate there, considering at least one Namepros forum participant lost a domain to that Godaddy employee in a Godaddy TDNAM auction.

    The stank sticks to whomever supports such nonsense.

    HeyNow has a good point about striving for high ethical standards in domaining. Attending the industry's largest meeting however does not imply an endorsement of all speakers and attendees.

    And in doing so, he'll keep posting over and over the same tired 10 year old one-time instance that everyone else but him, has long moved on from, for the next 30+ years. His whole perception of domaining is based on that one instance, and he'll never let it go. Good grief, get a life.

    Your post is grossly inaccurate. That "one time instance" is the only time we are aware of certainly. You really think it only happened "one time?" Also, it wasn't ten years ago. The stories I linked to were written in 2008. Why you chose to mislead your fellow Namespros members here with inaccurate data is beyond me, but it says a lot about you.

    Perhaps in the future you'll be the victim of a pick pocket, or worse, then be told you're a pain-in-the-ass when you bemoan that the perpetrator who stole from you is continually held in high esteem by others who walked along side you while your pocket was picked. You will probably feel like they don't care because it wasn't THEIR pockets that were picked, and you'd be correct. That's what's happening here.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate the understanding. If the other Namepros member who first posted that he lost a domain in a TDNAM auction to the Godaddy employee who drove the price up to $3000 reads this thread, he too will probably appreciate your understanding. Too bad others here seem not to appreciate our view.

    Again your post is grossly inaccurate. My perception of domaining is based on hundreds or perhaps thousands of similar instances and the repeated warship of shill-bidders, schemers, typosquatters, and other ethically-challenged individuals.

    To represent here that my perception is based on "one instance," after I've repeatedly posted about the Snapnames scandal and other seemingly sleazy players, means that you are either misinformed, have memory issues, or are purposely trying to deflect negative feedback about the subject matter.

    Your degree of integrity or intelligence or mental capacity (or all) is showing.

    Heynow, All you do is whine. Get a life! Geez! Of your 1000+ posts I'd bet half are negative whining rants. Sad.

    In addition to "whining," I also like to emphasize, to our fellow Namepros members, those of your ilk who have no problem misleading, exaggerating, misspeaking, and, well, IMHO, lying.

    But instead of pointing out any inaccuracies in my post about YOUR misleading posts, you instead point to the general demeanor of my posts.

    By the way, 100% of your posts in this thread are negative and whining. WTF?

    I never lied, exaggerated, or misspoke anything, but of course as usual, you make absolutely no sense, just lash out with your nonsensical whining, and made-up blabbering retorts. Just so..sad. Cry and insult all you want, I'm off to more positive subjects.

    yeah, that proves ...nothing other than a misstatement of time. Boy you are petty..

    And as I never 'lied, or exaggerated, you owe me an apology!!! (If you're man enough to do so.)

    I think a point that needs to be remembered is at the time Go Daddy permitted employees to bid in auctions. We may all think that not cool, but at the time it was permitted, not that it was not allowed and someone broke the rules, HeyNow if you were working there you might have chose to abstain, but the person working next to you may have participated as it was legal. Flippa as you know allows their employees to bid on auctions, now I think every place that allows this could make some note in the bidding that this bid is an employee bidder.

    While listening to the DomainSherpa podcast today, Michael Cyger asked if the organizers (Monte Cahn and Michael Berkins of RightoftheDot) could bid in the NamesCon live auction. The answer --- yes. Seems like a bad practice, but I haven't deeply considered it.

    By the way, I'll be at NamesCon. Hope to meet some of you there.
