its not always true that you must be liked, for sure, if you do good stuff its better to be liked, but when you do something so insanely new or amazingly cool you become famous and if you're an a--hole then people are going to buy your stuff anyway. and if you're a repeat offender I mean dealing out the quality stuff time and time again, people can't help but come back. of course there is truth in all the points here.
its clear to me that this is all really two faced, we know that the US government and large organizations are closing down bit torrent sites, file and video sharing services, so that kinda ties in with the snatching of domain names, it also ties in with controlling and monitoring the internet. making sure everything is vetted, I mean freedom of speech wasn't that removed from the constitution? Where the other face comes from is the financial world, totally de regulated and as I write this the biggest legal robbery of the social system. we need regulation in the finance world. we need reporting of wrong doing on domains so we can search and find out who and why they were snatched. lets make it possible for users to vote on these things, by empowering people we can get somewhere thats a better place than here
