    You would, or you are?

    It seems as if you've made it to the wikipedia talk page. Have at it.

    I haven't made that point.

    I already made my posts on the talk page -- if you would like to include what you posed above on the talk page it could be helpful for every editor to take a look at that information you provided just now.

    My question is why is this even on Namepros.com? This has absolutely nothing to do with the domain industry.

    Well, like it or not, epik is part of the domain industry.

    I agree this never should have been posted in Domain Name News section of nP. Which nP mods quickly fixed.

    Allegedly, Epik did act upon some of the information. Though, it appeared they acted due to a trademark aspect.

    I am not able to post.someone pls show this gorilla this link --

    https://www.trustpilot.com/review/epik.com

    If Wikipedia is neutral encyclopaedia then what makes you to publish testimony of one person i.e it's author Michael.
    Please also check ratings given to epik by people all over the world on trustpilot.

    You are still a hero. God bless you and yours for standing up to thuggery and for taking the time to state on the record that you disagree with the obvious bias.

    As for TrustPilot, it is also weaponized, which is why we are developing TrustRatings.com --- it is quite far along and will soon have a role to play.

    On our TrustPilot there is one bad review because a guy was butt-hurt because someone would not sell him a domain for a price he could afford. So he posts a 1-star review and TrustPilot lets it stand. So lame.

    Left unchecked, tyranny will impact a lot more people. Thankfully there are folks who stand up to it, and call it out for what it is when they see it. Truth will ultimately prevail.

    Well, TrustRatings.com

    Epik has 99 reviews

    Godaddy has 0 reviews, the biggest registrar in the world

    How does that happen.

    Maybe they dont direct their customers there to make reviews for them? Honestly, GD is very well established so maybe they give it less priority?

    TrustRatings.com is still in public beta. It has matured steadily and shortly we'll release it especially directed at the large number of businesses whose reputations have been sabotaged by fake reviews.

    Keep in mind, TrustPilot is part of the Silicon Valley establishment, as is Godaddy. As such, I would expect reviews that are problematic for Godaddy can be conveniently removed as needed. Epik, not so much.

    Fake reviews? What do you mean? Like a competitor writing bad stuff? What about employees or owner writing good stuff?

    Rob Monster
    Love Epik
    Competitive pricing. Unmatched platform. Remarkable service organization. Easy choice.

    Sure, that was an open and shut case -- obvious TM violation which could easily be discerned.

    On the other hand, when it comes to online pharmacies selling remedies for far cheaper than your local Walgreens, we are in no position to judge whether or not they are selling efficacious remedies.

    Our policy was reasonable, and that is that we ask for a court order, which we would enforce. Legitscript never produces those because it is cheaper to thuggishly apply moral suasion.

    I looked through OnlineDrugPills.net social media pages (based off an archive.org entry)

    Looks like both their Twitter and Facebook pages were either suspended or taken down.

    Though, their LinkedIn page remains active.

    https://www.linkedin.com/company/onlinedrugpills/about/

    Something I wonder/assume/hope LegalScript did a more extensive investigation, of which tangible evidence could have been turned over to law enforcement, nevertheless,

    I wonder if it was ever confirmed (and if so where) the website was selling prescription medication without properly vetting prescriptions. Seeing how their LinkedIn overview states most of the medications need a prescription from a licensed doctor. I'm not educated on the process of selling pharmaceuticals online, as I imagine LegalScript has more of an expertise on.

    Pretty accurate. I am a customer -- have about 10,000 domains on there. It was a test review actually but the assessment was spot on. If you tried us you would agree but you are too busy being a Godaddy apologist. I am not sure the compensation is worth it, but you do drive up page views and thread ranking so I guess I should thank you more often in spite of your wasted intellect.

    Why would they lock you? What are you doing to make them quickly block you?

    GoDaddy doesn't have to pay anybody and then I voted for Dynadot. On the other hand, you did say somewhere this was the year you were going to increase your influencer marketing spend on social media. You can't complain about somebody doing something, when you do it yourself. And if somebody has a problem with your company, maybe they just have a problem with your company, doesn't mean they're butthurt or paid off by Soros.

    I appreciate the extra info.

    But right now, I'm trying to keep blinders on to address the wikipedia page. Too much smoke and mirrors to decipher through otherwise.

    And that link might, not sure yet, might be out of scope to the wikipedia page. But I'll still check it out.

    As also out of scope might have been the George Soros comments, and allegation that Molly might not be a real person.

    Sure that vote made sense since you wanted to make sure Epik did not win. Oops.

    You don't even use Dynadot for your main domain:


    Explain that.

    I use both registrars, I posted that in the poll thread you were spamming. I still voted for Dynadot, where I have other domains.

    C'mon man... have you no decency?

    It's obvious that it was a test review.

    And since it's an obvious test review, why devalue the review platform by not attaching appropriate disclaimers, such as THIS IS A TEST REVIEW... 👍

    Actually to be fair to JB, I was the one who asked him why he changed his GD vote and he gave the same answer like he did now.
