Re: New domain! FretsOnFire.org

Yeah we noticed the fake website and I actually talked with the guy. To be honest, I told him to do whatever he wants. The old domain's presence on Google as sunk a whole lot after we left with all the content. Plus the last email "campaign" reached a lot of people. It's sad but I just hope not too many people will get here after giving them their email.

I don't want to get in a fight with the old domain owner. He's into sketchy business and it would not be his first time dealing with the law. I'm not sure he cares that much. I still reported them for phishing to godaddy where the domain is registered and to internet vikings' abuse where they're hosting that website but I didn't get any response since.

If you want, you can do the same here:

Who knows, if there are enough complaints they might take it down.

---- EDIT ----
Good news, it seems they took the webpage down. Don't know if it's from complaints or from good will but I'm happy with the results :)

Tally another on the board for equality and reputability! It's another step forward, that's for sure. :thumbup:

The phishing side of the page is still up. The blurred out image of this website with the email prompt.

Using yet another burner email, it no longer redirects back to this site, but rather the (spam) sites it was originally after the switch.

You're right. The fake website only went down a few days before they put it back up. We can still try and report them but now that it doesn't redirect here it's not much phishing anymore. Wish we could do more but I don't know how necessary that is. Too bad the memory we have from that domain name are stained by that kind of crap.

I nearly started crying when I saw what happened to .net
I was totally unaware of this domain switch. It didn't help that the email signed up with was abandoned as well haha. Oh well.

Hopefully not that many people fell for the box that asks for your email. Now if y'all excuse me, I'll go to bluzer's thread to get me some RB tunes :D

I was actually pretty surprised when I tried to access the original domain today (for the first time in a long time) and it directed towards a spam site. Glad to see that the site is still up and running and some of the older, original members are still active in the community. Some of you might remember me by my old username, Jrdnxxhero.
