A bunch of cunts, mostly in the Australian sense. Except that one guy.

Yeah no shit, you stupid faggot.  This isn't your fucking IM client.  Go wipe your ass and then come back and try to behave like a grown up, you sad bitch.

"This isn't your fucking IM client."

That's right! It's Warner's blog instead. :P

I used the Contact Me page on his website last night to send a request with almost this exact same message.  I was *shocked* as to what his real email address turned out to be.  Totally unguessable. ;-)

You're damned right it is.

You're just jealous because a single one of my "blog" posts here get more comments to a single thread than every article on Antyx collectively.

I imagine he's got a catchall on the domain, so BuckFutter@marktaw.com would work fine.

Warner - yes, but only on the strength of the comments. :P

You actually check your catchall email address?  What are you nuts?

I don't have a catchall (in fact I don't have email on Antyx), but a sysadmin friend of mine from long ago just told people his website was pizza.ee and to put anything before the @.

His business had nothing to do with pizza, it was just a catchy domain. :)

Do you think he thought a company that made electronically engineered pizzas would want to pay him scads of money for the domain?

Possibly. Thing is, in Estonia trademark law doesn't apply to domain names. Second-level domains can only be claimed by legal entities (not private persons), but you can claim microsoft.ee, and if it hasn't been claimed previously, you'll get it and Bill will just have to deal with it.

Isn't the domain names dispute mechanism - even country tlds - a worldwide standard thing? I thought that was a UN thing or something.

Not here it isn't. :)

.com/.net/.org is controlled by ICANN, and I suppose there's a European arbiter for .eu, but every country's TLD administrators get to handle their second-level domains as they please, apparently.

It's handled per country.  Each TLD is supposed to have a dispute resolution process but other than .COM which is still the same US committee there's no cross border resolution process.

WIPO ( http://www.wipo.int/portal/index.html.en )

I think there's a local dispute procedure as well - which may cover ccTLDs.

WIPO doesn't have any jurisdiction as such though does it?

If both parties don't acknowledge it then it has no power to determine ownership.

and here's an explaination of the system:

Ah right my understanding is if your ccTLD registrar has adopted the UDRP then whoever complains gets to choose the arbiter (WIPO is particularly popular) and the victim *ahem* sorry respondent has to prove their innocence of the 3 grounds for losing the domain.

I think nominet (the .uk registrar) said bollocks and organised their own system  - what the .ee registrar did I don't know.

My bad.  I didn't happen to find his website.  I was looking for a posting to email him from here.

Take a deep breath.

Gee, I wonder what someone who goes by MarkTAW might use as a web site address.  Hey, does anyone remember when he used to sign posts as www.MarkTAW.com?  Man, those were crazy times, weren't they?

before that, I used to sign my posts www.marktaw.com and before that I used real name once or twice, but switched to MarkTAW after a whle because I didn't necessarily want people from work (who I'd referred to some of Joel's articles... I remember the iceberg one was particularly relevant) to see the things I was saying.
