    Just a quick announcement to see who would be interested - we are going to be working on a formal letter letting the world know that all domainers are not represented by what we are seeing in these disgusting Epik leaks.

    This is a group we plan to maintain to continually counter the narrative that Epik and their staff present about our industry and the people within it.

    The slack is up, some if you are in there already. For any questions, DM me!

    Thank you.

    Being a disgruntled (or very angry) customer (or ex), disagreeing with their political, religious views and business practices is one thing, this just seems like a vendetta to me.......

    I have no need to defend my reasoning why I used them in the first place before the sh*t hit the fan.....I'm moving on with what I need to do......

    I suggest you (and the others) do the same.....

    Nobody is forcing anyone to sign the letter. I hope you will all give it a glance though when it is released, and consider it. We should show unity on this.

    That's your right to associate with what they represent to the rest of the world. I'm not going to and I don't think domainers as a community should. But do you.

    Tag me when you done writing it - I'd love to estimate the level of idiocy of the letter.

    Beezy, find happiness make “love” not war.

    Godaddy does worse imo; de-platform

    Stop turning this into a war fanning flames.

    Come for the discounts, stay for the "shitty code".

    You probably need three factor authentication with how they stored and protected data. Plain text, passwords, credit card numbers, CVV codes, and more.

    How about DASS. Domainers Against Sucky Security.

    Let's say i love to buy souvlaki gyros from a specific shop, because i like his meat and prices. One day, the shop owner get arrested because his ideas or illegal gun ownership. He was seller, i was a customer. I have nothing to do about his ideas. Personally, i don't really care and (possibly) i am not aware of owner's ethics. I am just a customer who used to buy a product. Replace souvlaki with domain.

    I don't think that's a good comparison. For years the CEO and employees have spoken highly about the security and privacy of this company, and the extremely talented staff. Now it suddenly turns out to be 'shitty russian code' and that a lot of PII data was not properly secured.

    We agree i think. Customers were choosing them because of security and privacy selling points. I don't really believe that the vast majority of them have the same ethics and go with them because of these.

    Yep, you don't need to even bring politics into the equation to show their marketing did not match the reality.

    Are you expecting too much from a novice registrar? At least they put something forward.

    You should direct your anger/criticism to Rob Monster, he named the code that way.

    If you know a better registrar, you are ahead of the game.
