You say that they expect instant success and getting zippo for signups.
With out looking myself, I am willing to bet (your) :) house that the company GDI tells its prospects how easy it is.
Is this correct?
And this is why they are complaining.
They were sold on the fact of how easy it is to sell the domain.
IMO, this is the wrong way to go about it, unless they are profiting from the folks that sign up as resellers.
Ah-haa, I guess this is where the dough is.
Again, just a guess with out looking real hard.
I did notice that they like to drop names of huge companies that have registered the .ws version of their name. (as of today, this is common practice!) I am actually surprized that the list they offer is so small!
Many even register www.theircompanysucks.com as it is cheaper as of today to defend it.
This is simple stuff really, and any company in their right mind would rather spend a few bucks to register the .ws version of their name vs. fighting the clown that registers it in advance. ( the net is new, yeah that is right, new!)
given time, these companies, via the courts, will establish unspoken rights to their domain in whatever extension offered.
With that said....
I know of no person on earth that wouldn't like a few extra coins to jingle in their pockets.
The problem is, many folks are not suited to sell a used bicycle at a garage sale. It just isn't for them.
The home page plays to the dreamers in our society, (like most MLMs)
Mlms make money from day one on a sign up.
I will state that again with a challenge for anyone to show me different!
Can someone show me one MLM company that doesn't make money from the person that signs up to sell their (whatever) as long as they charge a fee to join?
My advice, steer clear!

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
