I like the fact that Rick Schwartz is raising awareness through an appropriate domain, HallofShame.com.
As you can see by taking a look at the website, he basically calls out companies that want to unethically obtain an asset that doesn’t belong to them instead of simply negotiating and trying to buy it from the owner.
The domain is appropriate because if you want people to understand just how unethical this practice is, you can’t just limit yourself to saying they’re guilty of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking and leave it at that.
You have to explain what Reverse Domain Name Hijacking is to the general public in an easy-to-understand manner, you have to explain that it’s a form of corporate bullying that has to end.
And once companies understand that unethical business practices will have negative long-term consequences when it comes to the credibility of their business, they will think twice before starting to make threats.
If you want someone’s house, make him/her an offer.
If you want someone’s car, make him/her an offer.
If you want someone’s domain, you guessed it, make him/her an offer.
I hope Rick manages to successfully educate people as well as companies in this respect and encourage all of you to spread the word by writing about HallofShame.com on your website, by mentioning it on the forums you’re active on, by tweeting about it, by mentioning it on Facebook and so on.Advertisement: DomainingServers.com lets you host UNLIMITED domains at $0.98/month and we're putting a LIFETIME money back guarantee on the table (if you're not satisfied, we'll issue a full refund).
