    They also claimed that they suspended the shill bidders from their platform.

    They gave a pretty vague statement. They stated they suspended the related accounts. Which related accounts would that be? The seller account is believed to be Oliver Hogers. The domains were believed to have belonged to @andyboothsi . Confusion came when people noticed @andyboothsi and @BoothDomains were bidding on domains where the WHOIS had a Booth last name. Adding to the confusion is the fact @Oliver Hoger had bid on some of those domains, and he is believed to be the owner of the featured auction account selling the domains. So I ask, which accounts were suspended? Did they address HKDN? Were they reinstated? Was anybody issued new bidding alias? Do/did they have multiple bidding alias? Is that still allowed? Has anybody noticed any of the Booth's bidding or selling on NameJet? How long is this suspension? Does a suspension mean both from buying and selling?

    Another thing to note, is they stated that the next bid win practice would be suspended until further notice. Thus, I assume [hope] that means, if they intend to reinstate the practice then they will at least honor their shill bidding press release and give prior notice.

    Good one.

    They obviously don't care about their reputation and the integrity of their platform anymore at this point.

    DomainNameWire.com just published an article HERE titled, "Short seller targets Tucows with scathing report". The DNW article doesn't mention NameJet, but if you search the report linked from Copperfield_Research HERE, you can find an exert [screenshot below] that mentions NameJet, and concerns of shill bidding.

    Copperfield Research Twitter HERE, recently sent out a series of $TCX tweets.
