Imagine living in a world where there is no information about what is happening outside of your own house. Things would be confusing to some, then again others might feel blessed in their isolation.

Who said .ORG domains are worthless? While a lot of domainers seem to neglect other TLDs beyond the almighty .COM, there are plenty of sizable sales of .ORG domains.

A few days ago we posted about the spamming outfit behind the email notices titled “Domain Notification: This is your final notice of domain listing”. These morons systematically send out hundreds of thousands of emails, attempting to fool domain owners that somehow their spam is related to domain renewals.
