    Yes, several http://blog.domainlore.uk. He accuses Rob in there too.

    Theres a lot of circumstantial evidence and it certainly looks like some people are guilty but without that smoking gun.

    I would say there's enough evidence of people probably cheating, to revamp the system.

    I am inclined to agree. But if they lost all of their members, it's no small change. ~£200,000 a year from annual renewals alone. Perhaps they're blase about member applications because they prefer the £500 +VAT fee they get from each one, over actually enforcing their own policies.

    @Derek Course you dont, Only a coward hides behind the smoke!


    Anyway... as for me having success... your damn right i did and like i said to nominet, While they let people like UKBO accumulate 40+ tags its leaves others no option but to take extreme measures.

    However, given everyone assumed i was cheating as Rob advertised i told nominet exactly what i was doing and exactly what many others are doing... it was some shitty flaw's that has since been patched as i gave them step by step instructions on how to replicate and fix the flaw's... i also knew this would fix it for me however i knew some others would have also noticed it and thus also be patched for them....

    In doing so i knew it would leave 1 main player... Rob and all his tags and no flaws would be available to compete (For myself and for many others using them) and therefore everyone would get pissed off with constantly loosing to rob.. which is exactly what is happening now!

    Ive also passed on many logs and conversations to nominet between me and some of Robs members who have been leaking info and i believe nominet have now realized just how big the problem really is and therefore have took immediate intervention which is a direct result of UKBO... and thats just a fact.

    I did say the same a couple of pages ago. One person cheats, then others need to cheat too or they go hungry. The entire system we have currently is bust. But you, Rob, Kalin etc are all directly responsible for the situation we’re in right now of it all going away. I have no idea how much either of you have made, maybe it was worth it.

    Is this really how it went down though, Benjamin? I had an email conversation with Rob a few weeks ago that tells me different.

    True, these small registrars are the ones who have created any kind of market place and invested in it, creating value in the .uk domain space. Now Nominet fancy having that all to themselves putting hundreds of those membership paying registrars that created this market out of business. They grab our money, raise prices, introduce an extension nobody wanted, grab more of our money and then decide to sweep it all from under our feet because they couldn't be arsed to police their own systems.

    They easily could have nipped this in the bud with minimal effort but they chose to let this happen in their own time because quite frankly it was hugely profitable for them.

    Honestly, I've never heard so much drivel..

    You're soooo smart, it only took you three years to work out what me, Darren and Denys got ages ago - you probably didn't even work it out for yourself and were told by someone else anyway.

    You were successful because you had at least 5 tags, were close to Nominet and you were aggregating the responses along with the flaw with bursting EPPs later in the day like everyone else.

    I've no idea why you think you're smarter than everyone else - you're just not as important as you think you are..

    'Ive also passed on many logs and conversations to nominet between me and some of Robs members who have been leaking info and i believe nominet have now realized just how big the problem really is and therefore have took immediate intervention'

    Really? This whole process is because you gave Nominet some info - get real.. you're totally insignificant..

    Three years? Haha, ive not even been catching for three years :D and im not saying im significant either you muppet... and im certainly not saying this is because i gave them logs and flaws... what im saying is this is a direct outcome of tag army's

    As for your flaw, i have your original code here, its a load of jumbled up C thats written by a child (How you caught a single domain is beyond me) and your flaw used the shitty dac slowdowns which every man and his dog new about (Totally different to the ones i gave them to fix you muppet)

    Listen you jealous fool, like with any flaw... as you know... when the dac slowdowns was around all you needed was a single tag... a flaw is an edge and one tag is all it needs... i could have kept my mouth shut but i told Nominet on the basis i wanted them to put a stop to all the flaws for everyone... seen as though everyone keeps bitching its only fair they put a stop on everything and everyone... maybe there is more who knows but what i do know is exactly what robs doing and what many others are doing but it wont matter soon anyway... i cant wait for them to change it.

    If i had my way i would remove dac today and make it so 1 tag holder can buy as many credits as the want therefore additional tags are a total waste...

    Ok if you say so :D if i have 5 you must have 10 as your top cat around here... you must have done really well with your script before you was desperate enough to sell it to every tom dick and harry for peanuts and have less than 100 domains on STARWORKS :rolleyes:
