When boarding a plane, be careful what you say.
A small group of domain investors got booted off a Delta flight on New Year’s Eve, after their conversation raised the suspicion of an Illinois grandma.
Flight 2275 from Chicago, Illinois to Las Vegas, Nevada was delayed, in order to investigate the incident.
According to the elderly Illinois woman’s testimony, the following conversation ensued:
“We have to catch them before they drop…or the Chinese might get the chips.
Correct. Show them who runs the show. Did you test for traffic? I bet it’s all Asian or Iranian hits.
Buddy, the last reports show .XYZ is making a killing. That Negari guy knows how to play the Chinese.”
Other parts of the discussion involved terms such as “snapping” and “drop-catching,” along with derogatory terms about president-elect, Donald Trump’s intention to increase the capital gains tax bracket.
Paula Jean Maples, a septuagenarian grandmother of three from Peoria, Illinois, stated these words and phrases made her feel very uncomfortable. She reported the incident to the flight attendants, who talked to the pilot; he turned the plane around.
After four hours of interrogation, the group of domainers were allowed to board another plane to Las Vegas, where they will stay until the end of NamesCon 2017.
