    Start saving now, because you're going to pay and your suit will go no where. Take a little look at history. You've got nothing. It's safer to stay on your side of the pond rather than expose yourself in court. Bord couldn't win the Banco de Chile case, and he may have had more of a claim. And who is "we"? Your alter ego/split personality? You're a solo operation, so start using "I" instead of "we".

    I think that you are a solo operation who thought you could slip under AOL's radar and make some money at their expense. You got caught by AOL and you got caught with your .name violations. You aren't even a second-rate cybersquatter. At least Zuccarini is living the high-life in the Caribbean off all his typosquatting registrations. The DomainForSale guy is probably stoned on Venice Beach, but at least no one knows who he is and he wouldn't dare show up in court, much less actually try to defend a domain name that he knew he registered in bad faith. Your "friends" should do something better with their money, and support your mental rehab or send you on a long vacation. At least England is playing well in the World Cup.

    Suing AOL (& the NAF for that matter) in Britain will get you no where. You have to bring the suit in the US, because Britain has no jurisdiction over the NAF, the UDRP panel, etc. You're an idiot. Put your claims where your mouth is and show up in the USA to face the music or end this once and for all. I don't know what drugs you're on, but you need to pass some around if you think you're going to anywhere with this. Loser.

    Adrian, you are an idiot. You can't enforce your claims on AOL and the NAF from England. If the French can't get Yahoo, there is no way that an English court can get jurisdiction. For one thing, Bulkregister.com can refuse to supply the registrar certificate to the British court. Did you think of that? If you can't get control over the domain name you lose. Oh wait, you lost already and you'll lose again. You've got nothing.
