Posted on 08 May 2016 by Andrei

I’m literally in firesale mode right now and today’s newsletter has it all: -edited: the domains have been removed-. Something on today’s list for everyone.

Here’s the full text of the newsletter and as always, the domains will be removed within 48-ish hours so as not to get indexed:
