Did Uniregistry kick them off, or do they move to Epik at their own volition?
Can't edit my post, this was the tweet about it:
Twitter - free market research. 48 retweets already. I don't think any legit PR advisor would be ok with it. Ultimately, your choice.
And the Penn Gillette succinct view:
They went to uni temporarily I believe because of the setup they have with the broker escrow Agent and/or because of the abrupt deadline godaddy gave them. IM not 100% positive on this but this is how I view it
Thanks for the heads-up. I guess it rattled some cages.
That image at the end relates really to this quote:
First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
-- Pastor Martin Niemöller
I do believe much is at stake. I am not wedded to the choice of image.
Any pr advisor would be ok with what ? Supporting the first amendment?
Do you think the pr advisor Justine Sacco would be ok with it?
Anybody with a brain in their head or basic Marketing 101.
Show everybody your marketing insight and explain how using concentration camp pics is a good idea.
I saw nothing wrong with it. History isn’t always good. It makes people uncomfortable to be reminded of bad times in history.
It doesn't surprise me you saw nothing wrong with it, that's not a shocker.
Nazi germany had extreme censorship. Censorship is a core tenet of fascism. To support censorship is to support the past fascist ways. That is how I interpret the photo. Everyone can interpret it how they like but the idea seems obvious.
How do you interpret it
There is a gap between accommodating a problematic customer you did not invite in the first place, and actively soliciting their business - being the equivalent of an online ambulance chaser. Trying to figure out what good will come out of it.
Speaking of the Jews, nobody cares about them right now. People are more interested in upholding the rights of the aggressors and those abetting them, than the victims. Perhaps we don't strike the balance right here.

I have a technical question here. How exactly were they able to circumvent the (60) day lock when a domain changes registrars? When the domain was moved from GoDaddy to Uniregistry that should have triggered the 60 day ICANN mandated lock, but then it was able to be quickly moved to Epik.
Registrars can override the 60 day lock for domains more than 60 days old.
These days, it's often hard to say who's the aggressor and who's the underdog
Interesting. Good to know. Can the gaining registrar override this, or do you need a cooperating losing registrar?
Losing registrar has to ACK the domain. Most non-jerk registrars will ACK a domain for a known customer. The reason it exists is to prevent a daisy-chain of fraudulent conveyance for a stolen domain.
Sure, rogue for enforcing due process. Give me a break. More here:
Again on the technical side, does this happen often in your experience?
Google the term 60-day registrar lock opt out:
It is not exotic.
Except that is not the same lock as the 60-day post inter-registrar transfer lock, we are talking about here.
I'm just curious, not to criticize anyone here of their choice but looking at business perspective, we are all here to make money like you a registrant where your first goal should be to attract more users(?). Besides the ethical side, is worth to take gab.com and all the PR behind? i know that epik will gain a lot of visibility thanks to this move and will attract of course more "specific" users but you will probably lose some others for this move. The gain is more than the loss?
Fair enough. Which begs the question: what's the rationale behind the initial, post new registration 60-day lock?
wOw, in that post
