    I was not aware that he had, but there were death threats against him and his family, so I would assume that would be the reason.

    Just saw this thread pop up under new posts.

    If I never see another new post in this thread, it will be too soon.

    I don't know about you, but I am sick of discussing this subject.

    It is really old news.

    Can't we put this to bed already? :xf.smile:

    You don't have to discuss it if you don't want to, you can just ignore the thread.

    The topic is ongoing because Dicker still owes many people money, has been reported to law enforcement, and may face criminal charges or lawsuits.

    The Dicker Facebook account may have been de-activated due to a ToS violation, or complaints about him soliciting business or payments via FB and not delivering, or misrepresenting the offer. He may also have been banned from Paypal after they refunded at least one of his "websites" in response to a buyer complaint.

    Dishonesty does not just dry up and go away.
    I don't know the man personally but as long as he has legitimate debts and unresolved complaints then he should be reminded of his ill gotten gains.

    He may change his name in the future and probably someone here will find out and post it. That will mitigate damage to future recipients of his transgressions.

    If it prevents one dishonest deed or prevents one person from being caught in another scam is it not got to keep the topic active and open?

    If you read my post you would have seen that I said "Just saw this thread pop up under new posts".

    I did not actively search for this post. I saw it on the side bar under "new posts"

    Please understand I am not saying we should let this guy off the hook, and I am not saying it should not be discussed further.

    I am just as disgusted as everybody else and I just don't want to be reminded of what he did on a regular basis.

    That is all I was trying to say.

    Heh, this brings me memories. I remember this guy from the days RJ was running NP and A.D seemed very slippery and greedy. RJ was 10 times more honest than Dicker, though for some reason at the time everyone was ridding the Dicker train, probably because they were hallucinating fortunes he promised or something.

    Seems I was right.

    At one time he was saying he had 40,000 domains, 20k of them .ca. I don't think .ca sales would report that level of renewals. If he borrowed money from the mob he will be their puppet forever, until he gets the concrete shoes.

    If no one has seen him in person in some time, he may be a virtual entity, someone else using his great name and following to fleece people.

    At this point, all that is being posted in this thread is petty jealousy. People keep saying there may be new victims, but in the years since this started, no new victims have been posted. Yet the thread was bumped to the top because someone is jealous of a domain he owns. I guess we gotta keep doing it...

    At this point, it should be pretty clear that a decision was made to leave this thread open.

    You may disagree with the title, you may not.

    If a criminal act was committed, does that make the individual a criminal?

    Sherrif Joe was recently convicted of criminal contempt. Pardoned by President Trump, and he just announced he is running for Senate.

    Is it to say a criminal has never done good before, and/or is incapable of doing good in the future?

    Or is it once a criminal, always a criminal, and perhaps always has been?

    Who are we to decide? We are what some may say, word of mouth, or a community of industry peers. We are not a judge, jury, or executioner.

    When viewing in hindsight, some may say a persons actions (past, present, and future) are to be considered before forming a generalized, and on-going opinion.

    Take this example:

    Is that dead horse being beaten because he is unable to pay back money he stole from people? Maybe he promised a standard of horse rides he couldn't deliver because of an injury (or a false belief that he was a stronger, and better horse than he actually was, and his marketing over extended his services?) Does it matter that people only wanted to ride the horse because he was once a prized racing horse who gave the fans, and industry, hundreds of winning races, hours of entertainment, and was once considered a star, among the industry?

    The stick figure then beats the horse, not just because the horse didn't refund all who weren't delivered the services paid for, but because it appears the horse isn't and/or wasn't making a sincere effort to right the wrong he had created. This appearance may be coupled by the horses unwillingness (or inability) to sell prized possessions such as an expensive saddle, and/or shoes, that are desirable to others. The horse may have been saving these items for retirement, and/or they may hold sentimental value, but others such as the stick figure may see these as assets, and as such valuable assets, could be used to right the wrong created by the horse. But the horse has a family to consider, and as such, the horse is unwilling, or unable to relinquish such assets.

    Then, things change, when somebody from the crowd, shouts out that BTC has surged to $XX,XXX per coin. And the horse, having purchased BTC early on using funds acquired from services improperly rendered, realizes he can make everyone he wronged whole again, with interest.

    If the horse had purchased 1,000 BTC early on, were to liquidate at $10,000 per coin, then that'd yield a $10,000,000 value minus taxes, and fee's. If the horse owed $1 million, he could pay (or voluntarily settle) with each victim at a 3 x 1 rate, and still be left with a abundance of forgotten wealth.

    If each victim was repaid at a 3:1 rate, would there still be wrong doing? Would the horse still be labeled a criminal?

    What if the victims were also crypto investors, and hadn't they paid the horse for services improperly rendered, they would have used that money for crypto, and they too would have had the opportunity to acquire an equivalent amount of new crypto wealth. Thus, their 3X return, is negligible in comparison, to what they stood to gain, from the lost opportunity cost... Now I get these hypothetical examples are complex, and factors such as how long would each person have #HODL'd given the rise are speculative. ie If the horse had knew he could pay off his victims when BTC was at $X,XXX, would he (or his victims opportunity cost perspective) have held until it reached $XX,XXX. Still, in this odd crypto world we live in, it is possible for a dead horse, to make a fortune with investing early in a new ICO. Said dead horse could then repay all he is in debt to, and with interest. And then what?

    The point of the example being, Mr. Dicker still has an opportunity to right his wrongs. But is it too late? Can he ever redeem himself? Are there examples of him doing good in the past that should be considered? Some victims, or onlookers, may not consider his past, when there are still outstanding wrongdoings. Thus, it'd be great if Mr. Dicker could clear these outstanding wrongdoings, and then we can discuss closing this thread.

    Every individual can consider his past contributions to the domain industry when forming their opinion, but not every opinion will be of the experience/research. If it weren't for this thread, or other info originally posted by OP, then the most common search results of Mr. Dicker would be filled with domain awards such as Traffic Domain Hall Of Fame inductee, and with such title's, positive press, and experience, it wouldn't be difficult to find a new customer to oversell to.

    Lastly, if this thread was closed, than Mr. Dicker wouldn't have the opportunity to come to this thread, and share any updates himself.

    It comes across as ghoulish how the same vultures return time and time again to circle this old carcass of a thread. I know you feel you’re doing the community a service by keeping us ‘informed’ of how corrupt AD is/was, but at the same time, you do yourselves a disservice by coming across as a bunch of haters who enjoy nothing more than feeding off the negativity of others. Yes, we could just stay away and not read it if we find it not to our liking, but like a bad smell, it’s hard to ignore when it keeps getting regurgitated on this forum. IMO, until further evidence surfaces that warrants scrutiny and publication, take up knitting guys.

    ... or not.

    In all seriousness, I could care less if you do, or don't. You've obviously read more of this thread than I have, having posted over 30 times in this thread. And to your credit, you were transparent when you noted on page 66 the fact you work (or have worked?) for Mr. Dicker as a mod at the other forum. Clearly, you know him better than I, and possibly better than some of his alleged victims do.

    I know of his past, how he made a fortune by selling (illegally) re-programmed TV dishes etc. And no, I don't currently work for him.

    Do you know about his involvement in reputation repair, and/or dealings with Mugshots.com? I do not know what may have been revealed on the other forum (as I am not a member) or if anything else regarding the matter was recorded via Sherpa.

    I do know, the below domainsherpa video, gives a little insight to his involvement. And I wonder if information recorded in Sherpa, or information held by other domainers, could reveal relevant information that would help current or future lawsuits launched against mugshots.com, and some (or all) of their removal services. This issue is above my paygrade, but from what I've read, it appears for a long time, the general public has been unaware of the true, and full history of Mugshots.com.

    As an added bonus, here's an additional DomainSherpa video starring Michael Berkens, Page Howe @sitehq, the domain king @Rick Schwartz, and Adam Dicker.

    The new owners of his "wasteland" forum don't deliver on promises either? Coincidence or dare I speculate that they all may work together?
    The saga continues. :banghead:
