I will not post anonymous comments. Sorry…

I got an angry comment yesterday in seemingly unrelated post concerning a post made by Owen Frager at his blog.

I would have allowed the comment to appear although the commenter used some harsh language about Owen (that I would have removed) but my main problem was that the comment was anonymous.

The commenter was supposedly named “How how how” and used a fake gmail email account. His IP showed that he/she was from Europe.

Owen doesn’t allow comments on his blog so I can imagine the commenter’s frustration. It is sometimes liberating to curse on the blogger. 🙂 Hell, he/she might be cursing me now for not posting his/her comment.

The commenter was angry at Owen’s post: “I wonder how Frank feels about what he validated here in 2007 now in light of his own gTLD play with UniRegistry.”

I think overall that we give too much emphasis to what Frank has said about .com and new gTLDs. Yes Frank is a domainer icon but he is a salesman above all. He is like a car salesman selling Ferrari and Fiat in the same shop. You have to give a different pitch to each client so you can sell each of those cars.

But the best advice is: stick to the Ferrari if you can afford it.


About Konstantinos Zournas

I studied Computer Engineering and Computer Science in London, UK and I am now living in Athens, Greece. I went online in 1995, started coding in 1996 and began buying domain names and creating websites in 2000. I started the OnlineDomain.com blog in 2012.


  1. Written onanism is manifested via comment trolling. But it has no place in a blog, at least not without the commentator taking responsibility for it. Not only do I delete anonymous offensive commentary, I ban their IPs as well.

  2. The way I look at it. It’s our blogs and we decide what goes up. No need to explain. Man Europe is beautiful right now

  3. “Europe is beautiful” Agree, there are some beautiful parts in Europe at this time of year, and I’m sure Konstantinos would agree, many areas of Greece are very nice!
