    I think what she means is that it's her business because either herself or her friends didn't get away with this, so she's a little annoyed people here meddled and ruined their chances at stealing domains.

    I haven't got a clue what your point is? I couldn't give a shit who renewed, registered or stole what so long as it didn't affect me. My main gripes are people being accused of theft and group bullying of someone when you don't even have the facts of what happened.

    You've already said you didn't even know what Nominet's Terms are, your own states you will take ownership of a domain of one of your customers within 30 days of expiry. You aren't dishonest, but why should anyone take you seriously when you have already agreed you have no idea what you are talking about?

    I actually said that I misread Nominet's T&C's and that they for their part had also failed to pick up on my mistake.

    Why not address my point about the bullying of Susannah when people don't have the facts?

    If you read what has been posted here, you will find that Susannah has had ample opportunity to reply to legitimate questions. Susannah replied to one of them clearly saying that there was more than one way to skin a cat, and that Fasthosts have the trail. The fact that the domains have been reverted and that there has been no reply to provide any alternative to the assumption that Susannah asked Fasthosts for the name, and Fasthosts gave it, is not bullying. If anything, Susannah is the one that have taken you for a mug.

    Please, people, let's be civil, no need for insult or name calling. This issue affect all of us, its the terms .UK name space operates on and we cant ignore because it did not affect us at the moment.

    Susannah has stated that she did nothing wrong so maybe one of you oracles can show the evidence that she's lying?

    A great number of people on here are members of Nominet, so it has everything to do with them, given it affects the reputation of the .uk namespace, its operators and public opinion on those who are members.

    It reflects on Fasthosts and nobody else. You're just trying to justify sticking your nose into something that's got nothing to do with you.

    Yes

    Earlier in the thread when discussing acquiring the domain "with everything bound over by the agreement of the .co.uk holder"

    A quote from theregister.com article

    "That particular domain name, charlie.uk, which was assigned to Leon Hughes, who owns charlie.co.uk, was ultimately transferred to Susannah Clark. Hughes said he did not authorize the sale"

    Ok you could argue to the best of her knowledge it was bound over by the agreement of the co.uk holder but it doesn't appear she dealt with anyone but FastHosts? if she did why not clarify?

    If you're proven to have given factually inaccurate information and then no clarification after is everyone else the bad guy for pointing that out and being sceptical?

    Susannah is usually very vocal. She stated everything was above board (and it may well be) but the information at present, is pointing to that not being the case. Fasthost taking back the domain and a news report from the owner of the domain stating they did not authorize the sale to her.

    For someone that was asking for our votes not too long ago, and from someone who's normally very vocal about Nominet not being open... she's gone very quiet all of a sudden.

    That's the main reason people have become suspicious.

    She's doing exactly what she normally calls Nominet out for doing.

    I will repeat my comment made on the other thread about the news article:

    Sadly for somebody normally so vocal, on this occasion silence speaks louder than words :(.

    So based on nothing but hearsay and conjecture you chose to assume deceit rather than take her at her word? It doesn't matter that Leon was the registrant and didn't sell the name, what matters is how Susannah came to be the registrant and if that was by asking Fasthosts if she could buy it and them agreeing, then they're at fault.

    She said she'd done nothing wrong, why should she elaborate on how when it's nobody's business.

    Bollocks, the dogs had been let loose and she went to ground. This place has some really good people who say nothing because of the pack mentality of a few smart arses.
