    In a nutshell Domain Sherpa (Michael Cyger) removed all the video interviews of Rick schwartz (domain king) and Michael berkens (Thedomain) from the site.
    Rick and Mike are very upset and want answers, but domain Sherpa hasn't responded to them except for a tweet in the middle of Rick's Twitter post leaving a strange comment and an advertisement, crazy.

    I feel bad for Rick and Mike since they spent years donating their time, experience, and knowledge to the show.

    Rick says he is getting Angry!

    Anyways it's all on Rick's Twitter.



    Why do you think the videos were removed?

    That's what I thought, but is there more to it? Rick just wrote the following in regards to Mr. Cyger..

    "Thanks, but I am not looking for an apology.
    Just an answer to a question that he said he would get back to us on.
    SIMPLE. Right thing 2 do!"

    By "us" Rick means him and berkins.

    What is the question?

    Would I be to far fetched to Assume that
    it's as simple as mr. cygers lawyer advised him not to say anything in regards to the removals of the video and they want him to admit it to complicate things to possibly force him to put the shows back up.

    Rick is now demanding the shows go back up,
    just a thought but Rick and berkens if possible should buy the rights to the shows from cyger. That way Cyger doesn't have to worry about liability,...maybe. I'm not a lawyer.

    Its always harder to fix a situation when anger is involved. They all seem to have good reasons to be angry at this point. Let's hope they can find some peace and come to a mutual solution.

    Rick is threatening Michael on tweeter.

    You might have problems but taking it to an online platform is not professional!

    Michael Cyger is a smart guy, I am glad he didn`t respond them back online.

    I think Domain Sherpa should restore all of the interviews, Dicker has been exposed for some time now, if any one falls for his tricks now, then that's their own fault. Despite Dicker's bad reputation now, he still did provide some good tips, advice and insight for domainers to learn from. Also, those episodes did have other valuable information in them aside from Dicker's contributions.

    I agreed with Cyger's decision to pull the interviews temporarily, but I think its time to put them back up. It is a tough decision either way, I fell for both sides of this argument.

    These videos have been gone for how long now? All of a sudden........

    Perhaps he could add back those videos BUT with a large overlay disclaimer that says "STILL OWES PEOPLE MONEY - BEWARE!" and have that flash in front of A D face each time he's visible.

    https://dsad.com/domain-shanes-daily-list-domains-auction-thursday-june-8th/

    I just read shane's post mentioning Rick and imo he is wrong in his assumptions.
    No offense but seems to many people in the limelight don't really know much about domain names and how to utilize them, and just have lists trying to make money selling.
    You can benefit so much more from listening to people that utilize domain names and profit from its use. But that would be bad for business.

    To an artist drawing comes naturally, but that doesn't mean others can't learn to draw as well with enough knowledge and training.

    Great.. This is one reason why I'd always wanted to download the interview/review videos for offline access. I'm not sure how many videos were there and both Google and Archive.org are of no help because of robots.txt blocks

    Question to others: Does anyone have a copy of the audio downloads or the videos that they can share with me privately?

    Thanks

    No one should reply to that, except idiots...
    Rick's tweet turns from a wise and wisdom to a hell of nonsense threat...
    I lost respect towards him tbh. Did he experiences a thing that called post-power syndrom?

    Personally learned a lot from Rick's videos and blogs and do appreciate his time and effort to teach us all, but anger and hatred is not something to be respected, there are better ways that lead to peace, no matter what.

    Edit: Have to add that I'm a great fan of DomainSherpa and really hope this all ends positively, all of you are a great wealth of info to the domain name community.

    Don't know exactly know what is going on but I am surprised.Schwartz and Michael have been doing those shows for a long time. Whatever happened had to be bad enough to destroy relationships. Sad.

    In a nutty shell:
    1. Rick Schwartz and Michael Berkens volunteered their time on Michael Cyger's DomainSherpa, alongside Adam Dicker.
    2. Mr. Dicker stole money from people.
    3. Mr. Cyger deleted all of the videos with Adam Dicker, including the videos where he was alongside Mr. Schwartz and Mr. Berkens. Why? To halt others from falling victim to Mr. Dicker.
    4. Mr. Schwartz and Mr. Berkens asked for an explanation from Mr. Cyger.
    5. Mr. Cyger will not respond to them. IMO, on good advice from his attorney.
    6. Mr. Berkens wants the videos back up. IMO, Mr. Cyger's attorney has said that's a liability because of Mr. Dicker.
    7. Mr. Schwartz is angry that they're being ignored by Mr. Cyger after all of the superb help they bestowed upon him.
    Then they lived happily ever after.

    Sleep tight. :sleep:

    Restore them with a warning label for anyone who does not know Dicker.
