Apparently one of Colin Campbell’s comments in domain blogs regarding the free .xyz regstrations that were pushed to unsuspecting customers at Network Solutions made Daniel Negari very angry.
Colin made a few comments in my post .XYZ is DEAD – DISASTER! Daniel Negari Exposed! .XYZ down to 34th place! Where is Deals.xyz?. I think this could be one of the comments that Daniel Negari didn’t like:
I always appreciate honest reporting, even when it comes to .CLUB. Kevin, Andrew, Ron, Rick, Michael B., and Michael G. (aussie) have all pointed things out about .CLUB that at times I wished they hadn’t. We are all human and we make all make mistakes. We all need to be accountable. Unfortunately the acts of 1 registry are tainting the entire industry. I have seen others raise suspicions about .CLUB, and other TLDs today because of XYZ’s unethical practices. I shouldn’t have to but in defense of Frank’s .LINK he has always been upfront from the very beginning with .LINK and the registrations he did. Lets not let one bad apple here spoil the crop.
Colin, CEO, .CLUB
And here is Colin’s comment over at Rick’s Blog after an email exchange with Daniel Negari:
“To the industry,
I just received an email from Mr. Negari. I thought there was no better place to share it other than RicksBlog.com. I made the effort to talk with him about 8 days ago expressing my concerns. After that call I realized that I did not want anything to do with him, nor would I ever offer advice in the future.
Here is what he stated in an email I received today at 3:27:
To: Colin Campbell
Wow – Your ethics – or lack thereof beyond baffle me. The truth will be told and come out – completely. I hope you lose sleep at night knowing I know everything you have been behind.
If Mr. Negari, believes that I am behind all of the uproar behind the opt out registrations and that I managed to convince an entire industry through a few of my own personal comments I think he is misguided. If anyone who was influenced by my comments or my concerns with this marketing campaign, please come forward. I’d really like to understand how I could have caused all of .XYZ’s issues?
I guess Daniel Negari doesn’t like people that are honest. It is human nature to always fear the unknown.
