    Wow, man. Firstly, I'd have let him have it... what a shitty name. And if I'd have really wanted it, I'd have gotten it back from the police? Secondly, not worth a bullet. Thirdly, really.. ? Fourth, the guy could obviously not shoot very well because If I'd have managed to get the gun and shoot him "several times in the chest" he'd definitely be dead lol.

    EDIT:

    All that for a shitty domain name...

    That whole 'influencer' thing irritates me. Almost invariably the people who set themselves up to be 'influencers' tend to be shallow, vain and superficial. Though of course, there are countless kids who will buy in to their 'wisdoms'.

    This guy sounds like a crazee. Totally rubbish domain in the first place.

    The nearest I came to hassle was when I ran britishnationalparty.com as a forum about the party. They demanded 'their' name from me. I declined. Things got a bit hostile. But I had young kids at the time and in the end I just let it expire. No idea who picked it up.

    I figure this influencer guy was a crazy one off, and I think the more dangerous names are ones that challenge despotic regimes or call dictators out.

    ...it's so difficult to aim when you're holding your piece sideways...

    Ahem.

    As you were.

    Gangsters don't have time for "building the castle" they just need to shoot someone quickly and look cool while doing it. Who needs aim anyway!

    If part of a robbery is giving your name, address and email then I don't think you're likely to get away with it

    I had an uncle once who used to calibrate the sights on sniper rifles.

    So close. If he'd just got out the house they never would have found the hosting company or the domain again.
