    So you say. How are renewals going? How about the CFO and all the other folks you've laid-off recently?

    The problem is that you offer vague assertions with no concrete data to back them up other than "well, the lights are still on."

    The new.net ceo says:



    Once again, the rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated! We are still here and continue to work hard to grow our business.

    (As with prior F*Company strings that find their way onto our boards, we will lock this string to prevent this discussion from getting out of hand. We are interested in this discussion board being a place for active discussion on matters relating to New.net domain names and the domain name industry overall -- and not a place for expletive-filled trash talk. If the latter is your fancy, then please visit F*dCompany.)

    Best regards,

    David Hernand

    CEO, New.net

    "Once again, the rumors of our demise have been greatly exaggerated!"

    This must mean that there is demise, but he feels that it is exaggerated..hum? Doesn't look good wildcard!

    "We are interested in this discussion board being a place for active discussion on matters relating to New.net domain names and the domain name industry overall"

    Funny David, when there is talk about another company or domain matter other than new.net, the poster gets walked all over from what I can see! wildcard spreads libel rumors that are unfounded and 100% bull****, you don't lock those threads though.

    I smell a bull**** ceo, is wildcard David I wonder?

    Time to pack up like your Buddy Steve, hit the road and give back the investors money you are a bunch of failures living high on bull!

    When you are representing a company you have to be very carefull what you say, to me this isn't good!
