    A recent article by a domain blogger spoke about this subject, but failed to provide clarity.
    First he said, "But there was one big difference between me and all these people that claim that there is a “Boys Club” in domaining that doesn’t include everyone."......This quote implies that there is no "boys club" as some people have claimed...

    And then he says, "You aren’t invited to the “boys club” not because you are a new investor or not good enough.".........This quote implies there is a "boys club" and even goes on to state you must be invited.

    You can read more here:https://www.namepros.com/threads/shane-cultra-when-i-first-started-out.990951/#post-5897509

    So which is it?...Is there a "boys club" in the domain community?......

    I'm sure there is some sorta Mickey Mouse club between some of the domainers. I mean I wouldnt even be surprised if there a few domain cartels operating.. with sole purpose of using domains to launder money in and out their respective countries...

    Whenever there is money to be made you can almost always guarantee that there will be few who will do whatever they can to exploit and dominate the system. It happens in all industries....

    I explain how domains can be used for laundering money here:

    No there's not a 'boys club' per se, but probably more of a situation of long timer domainers that have been going to domainer events for a very long time, that have come know each other more so from seeing each other so often for so long, and are more friendly towards each other. But some like to (want to) feel that there is a 'boys club' or 'secret domainer society', because, as the blog notes they - "...stay at home because (they don't have) a big set of balls that they have in the domain blog forums, and will spread these types of myths. Like you did about a year ago or so.

    Thanks, I will try not to take that as a personal attack, but in doing so I will be exercising self control.

    Domains are an off shoot of the computer industry, which still has the people active from days when computer tinkering was much more appealing to 'boys'.

    Cause there is, and most rationale folk know it. There is always hierarchy, a ranking of sorts is deciphered by the so called elite. But I must state there are many recognised domainers who do not fit this criteria.

    Moral of the story.
    1.Get profitable.
    2.Go to events and meet experienced domainers.
    3.Be approachable.
    4.Apply your new found knowledge.
    5.Get noticed.
    6. Earn entry to the "Club".

    Not easy. However, as a rookie domainer I think Shane Cultra provided a good blueprint.

    I'm unaware if this but if in fact it's true and you've made it public I suggest the following.

    • Keep your doors, windows locked at all times and change all your register passwords ASAP.
    • Keep all blinds, or curtains closed at all times.
    • Stay inside and if you must leave let someone know when you should return.
    • When you eat, prepare it yourself, don't eat out.
    • Be aware of your surroundings at all times.
    I could go on but you get the drift.. Just kidding of course! :)

    This explains why some domains I searched for which were taken years ago which means they are ultra premium and super "liquid" are owned by shell companies in the Grand Cayman or Turks and Caicos.

    Now THAT is when you know you've become BIG BOY Domainer status.

    Imagine trading domains and never having to pay taxes?

    Personally, I am a person who sincerely likes to help people, not take advantage of them . Knowing that, the blueprint you speak of would be against my morals an so many levels...Best of luck to you!
