Has anyone else seen Brian May's yet? What on earth was he thinking of?

It's certainly not as bad as the 2nd internet. I don't even want to mention it it's so terrible because I don't want the scammer getting traffic and rankings. It's some teenage austrailian kid who has a site up selling subdomains on the 2nd internet dot com or whatever it is with the excuse that all the good domain names on the internet are taken so buy one on "the 2nd internet".

The bad news is that supposedly people are buying... what a scam.

Thanks for the heads up on that one, Sara. I'd not heard of it.

Brian May's site isn't a scam. I just thought it was badly designed.

Re the 2nd Internet thing, there was something a few years ago which may have been similar. It was some kind of eu.com thing (and I don't mean a proper tld). People thought that they were buying a domain, when in fact they were actually purchasing a sub-domain on the seller's domain. Rolling Eyes I think I might have fallen for that one, but I don't remember now. Embarassed

lol, well those who don't know much about how domain ownership works or have basic concepts about how search engine ranking and trust work would be prone to thinking it's a great idea, which is too bad.

Very Happy

The trouble is that some of the scammers can be very clever. Sure, most of them are thick as pig sh.. and follow the band, but some of them can be quite innovative. Pity they don't use their talents for something more constructive.

These days if I'm ever in doubt about anything I'd most definitely ask on a forum. There again, if I'm in doubt about it, I probably don't need to ask. But we all have to start somewhere. I'm expecting to do better soon as I've just won a fortune on the Nigerian lottery. Wink

Congratulations! I'm surprised there was enough left for a lottery there since I just helped the Nigerian princes widow's nephew claim the royal fortune by funneling it through my bank account for them for a modest commission.

LOL! I've not had a 419 for ages but I got one today from someone who wanted to be my Christian sister. It seemed like a great offer but I'm afraid I've been a confirmed atheist for more than 30 years so the offer didn't really appeal. I can let you have it, though, if you'd like it.
