    I'd like to think that the admin and mods at DNT are fairly easy going. We certainly believe in free speech, and good debate. But we won't have the piss taken out of us; nor will we be mocked.

    You may have noticed that Corey was banned again yesterday. She was banned previously (for upsetting the harmony of DNT and defying a moderator), but we gave her a second chance after 30 days time out.

    A few people have asked the reasons for her latest ban, but I won't go into them here. However, it had nothing to do with her posts. ;)

    Suffice to say she did something yesterday which was totally unacceptable to us - hence the additional ban which is for 6 months.

    This morning I received an email from her which related to a trade on the marketplace. (I will address that separately elsewhere). I was gobsmacked by it - then I laughed my head off. I thought I would reproduce it here to help fellow members understand what we have had to deal with.

    (I have edited some names to protect the innocent!)

    This is my response to her:

    Reading this post has cost at least $21 worth of my time (pro rata'd @ $1260/hr). Neddy, I expect you to personally compensate me for this or I will be lodging a complaint with all the relevant (and irrelevant) authorities I can think of :D

    I'd like to think that it is entertainment - and therefore you should pay me. :)

    I do accept PayPal.

    What a joke! She's a classic example of someone who will never succeed in this industry. Not just because of this, but because of virtually every post she made on DNT.

    Bye bye Corey! :D

    ~ I feel a class action against ned is the only 'fair way' to settle this disturbing issue ~

    Might be out of frustration at not finding a promo code for the $5 cost to join NF. I really did LOL @ that one.

    Amazing - and yes very entertaining! I see these every day. BUT my favourites are 'hand over a domain worth $20K for $100 otherwise I will lodge complaints with auDA and the Queen etc......'

    Yes I wasn't going to comment but the guy who offered the name for sale and which I was outbid for by Corey just sent me a PM
    I had to email him direct to his Hotmail.com email because He doesn't accept dnTRADE PM's
    Nice and friendly
    So I sent him an email offering to buy the name on 2 conditions
    he refund her money and he transfers name to ventraip (which I offered to pay the renewal cost incurred because name has less than 3 months regn.)

    Nice friendly still, but puzzled.
    So I sent him a copy of the email he sent Corey and why she got upset.
    Less than friendly and reason COREY got upset.

    Not so friendly , now hopefully you can all at least get some idea of WHY Corey got upset.

    SAD thing is I and Corey are both still interested in the name, but his behaviour prevents that.


    Disclaimer:
    Neddy (admin ) opened the floodgates by posting private emails
    This post maybe will be removed, I maybe will be banned .
    But this post will live elsewhere.

    • You are forever making public and private representations on behalf of Corey. I think most members know of your allegiance to her. So this post of yours is par for the course - as no doubt you two have been discussing strategy together. ;)

    • The member concerned does accept PM's and emails. I just checked his settings. Anyway, both you an Corey have his email address, and he seems to be responding - albeit in a strange and aggressive manner. (No one has seen Corey's initial email to him, so maybe his response was predicated on that?).

    • DNT does not get involved in disputes between members - unless it upsets the harmony of the board. You asked me to contact the member originally - and I did. I asked him to sort it out with Corey.

    • DNT does not condone members not settling transactions with each other - even if one member has been banned. Reputation and trust are important - and a deal is a deal. Other members now know that the other member involved is "domainguy". Let's hope he sorts it out quickly with either or both of you. If he doesn't, please let me know by PM.

    • What got me upset - and the reason I published Corey's email, was that she threatened to complain about DNT and it's owners to every authority under the sun unless we sorted out her $21 purchase (with a 3rd party) by lunchtime on that same day! What utter bullshit was that? I did suggest to you that an apology from Corey might be in order - but I'm still waiting. :rolleyes:

    • Members should be aware that Corey was not banned for this. She had been banned the previous afternoon for something else (as Djuqa well knows).

    • Djuqa, as much as some members may want to see you gone, we're not going to ban you. Not for this anyway. ;) In the 8 months we have been in the chair, we have only banned one person - and that was Corey (twice). One other member was banned for a couple of hours recently, but I rescinded that.

    He didn't accept PM's this afternoon , when I recieved his initial PM, that is why he listed his email Address in his PM so I could respond to him.
    he seems to turn PM access on and off regularly.

    As for the other stuff, I know Corey was not banned for this matter. It is why I got involved because at the time of the ban, Corey was trying to sort out this crap and he wouldn't answer emails and she could not contact via PM's.

    Phew! I guess that means I'm off the hook. :p

    On a serious note, I'm glad she got her money back.
