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 blog in 2012.


  1. I just emailed their attorney, I know him because they UDRP’d my in 2012, I had it for 12 years and didn’t realize it was a TM Hustler Magazine, they dropped the UDRP when I gave them the domain, it wasn’t worth a fight, they have a legit Magazine and TM since before I reg’d the domain so I had no problems with it.

    The attorney was a nice guy, I just told him to tell Larry his names are getting suspended and his email site isn’t working, I also gave them shit about why did they pay for a UDRP on and take it from me and then just let it expire and now it is reg’d by somebody else recently, I guess I shouldn’t have said anything because they will probably take it from the new owner now, oops…

  2. Right? I seriously didn’t know, I guess I just didn’t put 2 and 2 together, I had definitely heard the term which is why I reg’d the domain but I never bought the magazine, I thought it was just a generic term, once I was made aware of the errors of my ways I had no problem giving them the domain…
