    It is correct. NamePros members pay $8.49 for all-inclusive full-service .COM. If you fund your account via bank transfer or crypto deposit, you can be approved for $8.10.

    The reason why we can have great support and unmatched pace of innovation and yet still be a price leader for domainers is because the retail customers carry the water.

    I'll take your word about Lehman, as I didn't follow such things back then.

    So no potential big problems with Libra....

    Are you all paying attention to what just happened to BTC?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you ..... ESCAPE VELOCITY:

    This is when you should take care to also quote domain prices in BTC as there may well be a bunch of BTC windfall that will need diversifying in short order.

    These speculative bubbles tend to exceed expectations as they climb the wall of worry.... If you need a BTC escrow agent, Epik is at your service. The seller can have USD, Euro, etc. The buyer can use BTC.

    The mad money is about to flow, but remember not to be the guy holding the drippy bag. Bulls make money. Bears make money. Pigs get slaughtered. Good luck to all.

    On a number of occasions, I tried to meet with the ANTIFA Seattle folks that had my neighborhood leafleted and who were generally posting nonsense on local forums. They all refused to meet, even though I invited them to decide the venue and time. The various Twitter storms they sent my way are still online, e.g. here.

    The truth is most of them are kids living with Mom and/or Dad. Someone actually researched the topic and indeed that is what they found:

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4200272/92-Berlin-left-wing-activists-live-parents.html

    So, if you ever have an encounter with ANTIFA, just keep in mind that these folks are probably young, unemployed, broke, frustrated, and hate authority. They don't say this to condemn them, but to acknowledge that odds are good that they are in in a bad place, lost, and with little hope.

    My solution was to engage with kindness, and openness. They have not bothered me since, in part because they were rational enough to see that in spite of the rhetoric, I meant them no ill will, and would be more likely to administer a hand-up rather than a beat-down.

    As some folks here know, Epik recently acquired the hosting company called Sibyl.Li. It is a great fit for us, as they specialize in high availability, and already host many sites, including Gab.com. We also just became a RIPE member so that we are able to issue IP addresses in our own name.

    In the meantime, earlier today, one of Sibyl's legacy IP address suppliers just happened to send the Founder of Sibyl a note indicating that Epik should not be able to use his IP addresses due to differing with my perceived politics. Here was the relevant quote:

    upload_2019-6-22_12-4-43.png

    Since Epik now has its own IP blocks, we were ahead of the game here. Yet, it is worth noting that the particular conclusion was informed by a Wikipedia article that is likely authored and controlled (camped on) by determined adversaries, from the likes of the Southern Poverty Law Center, and their ilk.

    Even though I have pretty thick skin, this is clear evidence of an economic consequence of weaponized propaganda, that was ranked #1 by Google as being an authoritative data point describing my entire body of work. It is also a good illustration of how rigged the system becomes once you peel the layers.

    In case not aware, the people who are behind the ongoing attempt to defame me are not volunteers, but rather are typically salaried personnel whose job it is to defame, unperson, and to otherwise discredit. I believe there are two things this opponent does not like in particular:

    1. They don't like being proven wrong. Transparent Ask-Me-Anything threads like this one expose and document the obvious inconsistency between the portrayed image and the factual reality. The SPLC and others wish to portray me as hateful when in fact that idea is nonsense and they know it. There is a reason why SPLC is being sued into oblivion, and why propaganda machines like Vice.com need to raise $250 million from the likes of George Soros to stay alive. The people who work there all know the deal. I am quite sure that the eternal price of their soul-selling profession is definitely not worth it.

    2. They don't like people to get too close to the truth. The adversary here would like like to de-platform groups that are lawfully engaged in documenting and sharing their findings. I am not saying that such interests are going to be lucrative or career-enhancing, but for those who view that as their purpose, and are doing it in their right mind, and lawfully, have at it. Epik complies with regulatory and judicial inquiries. If there is a legal judgement against a client, we enforce it, particularly if the client acknowledges they won't appeal the judgement.

    Looking back, preservation of lawful free speech on the Internet has been an uphill battle for Epik for nearly 8 months now. If I had to do it all over again, I would still do it in spite of the resulting persecution. Why? The act of standing in the gap allowed new innovators to come forward, and for new legislation to be put forward. The adversary overreached in their efforts. It was not the first time. It won't be the last. My hope is that when folks see tyranny at work, online or offline, they will have the courage to call it out for what it is, and to endure the resulting episode of tribulation, knowing you did the right thing.

    I was not going to post this Project Veritas video about Google but something interesting happened. We have a member of the House of Representatives who has now posted it on their official website. It is here:

    https://gohmert.house.gov/uploadedfiles/google.mp4

    The video was taken down on YouTube. For the moment, the Project Veritas channel is still up. If it goes missing, it is also backed up here.

    The notable thing here is that:

    1. Google is indeed weaponized, or at least factions within Google openly acknowledge bias in editorial guidelines.

    2. The US policymakers are openly taking a position on the issue and turning it into not just talking points but legislation.

    Where this leads, who knows, but it is worth noting the change in political discussion from rhetorical talking points, to something more emphatic with unknown consequences in terms of fines or regulatory action.

    You left out a few endearing traits like entitled, lacking critical thinking skills being only emotionally driven, coddled by their parents, never taught personal responsibility, bad money managers, irrational, drug users, alcoholics, lazy, unemployable in the private sector (except perfect for Govt jobs).

    Maybe you should go down to Portland, they have their own bar. Cider Riot. Just bring some security, bear spray, etc.

    Thanks Frank. Welcome back to the never-ending thread about free speech and the search for truth.

    Those folks on that talk show sound like they are running a support group for lost, Godless people who have little joy in their lives and are being watched by like-minded people who need assurance that they made the right choice even though secretly, in their hearts, they have a nagging feeling that they might be missing something really important. So they keep searching for ideas that will justify and validate their world view.

    Did Matt Dillahunty come out of the closet yet?

    upload_2019-6-28_18-8-0.png

    Though you might doubt it, if I were to actually came into contact with a guy like Matt, if he would allow it, I would certainly not give up on him. See this news:

    https://believersportal.com/lifelong-famous-atheist-bill-hayden-receives-jesus-at-85/



    I believe that the more you study spiritual matters, the more inescapable the reality of the spiritual realm becomes as does the certainty that life is not random. And as this old guy shows, as long as you are still breathing, it is never too late to repent and get wisdom.

    Speaking of wisdom, there are some solid old school teachings here from the late Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones:

    https://www.mljtrust.org/free-sermons/great-biblical-doctrines/

    I am rediscovering his work recently and like them even more now than the first time I heard them.

    That's why he is really brave. It's foreseeable that most of the people will say he is crazy and having mental illness, etc.:hungover: Anyway, he is the first one as a tech company CEO brings up this topic on Youtube.

    For me, he's telling the truth, it's so weird but real. I personally encounter Mandela effect too. :dead:

    I do think there is evidence that facts change, e.g. the old saying that history is written by the victors. The idea that history can be rewritten is reasonable enough, and indeed the examples given are reasonable that indeed some history might have been rewritten and new facts/evidence conjured up for whatever reason.

    As for Quantum computing, the founder of D-Wave, Geordie Rose, is an interesting guy. I think the essence of his method is to somehow combine computer science and magic/occult knowledge. A talk he gave in Vancouver is somewhat insightful there.



    For the record, I don't believe there are "aliens from other galaxies". I do believe that there are angels and demons and spirits that are capable of operating outside of space and time. And if one could communicate with them at scale, I suppose that might be interesting for some people.

    if the mandela effect is just a bunch of people remembering something wrong, then yeah, it's real.
    like the "luke, I am your father" thing?
    but I thought it usually referred to people thinking reality changed or something about parallel universes. I was probably wrong about that.

    There are two definitions for Mandela effect.

    For the unbeliever, Mandela effect is just a bunch of people remembering something wrong.

    For the believer, they found the history has been changed and no longer match with their memory. They think cern, D-wave, AI or God have something to do with it. The most acceptable explanation is parallel universes.

    I had spent countless hours to read the related materials. Double-slit experiment has caught my attention. The final outcome can be change by simple observe the predict experimental results. This is a fact and it also proved that the reality is not as solid as we believed and it can be change by simple observing.

    he has a weekly tv show
    the phone number is clearly shown at the youtube video

    I love to hear you discuss with him
    he is a very structured and intelligent man
    and I'm sure you can convert his "lost soul"
    ( he has no soul, as far as I understand him)

    the show actually is about calling and discuss to convert him


    same I hope for you

    the problem here is
    he is not talking about aliens

    he is just referring to a fictive alien-invasion
    comparing the effects of the AI development to such an invasion


    you better listen more carefully
    and have fewer ideas of angles

    as that simply has nothing to do with your infantile devil/angle ideas

    yes, I have listened to him.

    to me that leads to the questions:
    1) does snow white have protruding ears?
    2) and more importantly is the Easter Bunny vegetarian?
