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.
