Why mince words? I found their statement pretty harsh for a guy that traveled to the ends of the world for these folks and cost him dearly not being with his family. But beyond that, it was filled with BULLSHIT imo and I think I can lay it out here.
First the Oversee statement from DNJournal.com:
'Predictably, the path Monte Cahn has chosen is needlessly confrontational and provocative. Regrettably, his perceived dispute with Oversee is a result of his own falling short of expectations. This action will do nothing to further his cause and will only result in the needless expense of time and attorneys fees. It is unfortunate that Monte’s actions will impact employees and clients of Moniker, the company he helped found.
Monte’s unfounded claims are well overstated and singularly without merit. We will vigorously defend this action and we look forward to resolving this in court at the earliest possible opportunity.'
This is the BULLSHIT Oversee had the NERVE to write and release yesterday about Monte.
Let me pick this apart like a VULTURE on a DEAD Pigeon.
“Predictably, the path Monte Cahn has chosen is needlessly confrontational and provocative.”
Predictably?? Are you kidding. The guy that saved Oversee from a HUGE confrontation in 2007? The guy that coined the word Coopertition? The guy that would go to any length to avoid problems?? TOTAL BULLSHIT from the get go.
Predictably? Maybe for ME….but for Monte??? TOTAL BULLSHIT!
Ok so that is CRAP #1 and on to #2
“Regrettably, his perceived dispute with Oversee is a result of his own falling short of expectations.”
Read the lawsuit. According to that, they fucked him 5 ways from Sunday imho in front of the entire industry. It rings of the truth given what I personally have witnessed over the years.
“This action will do nothing to further his cause and will only result in the needless expense of time and attorneys fees.”
Wrong! 3 strikes and it is going to cost Oversee more in lost business than the lawsuit. Trashing Monte was a VERY stupid thing to do imo and that was what this release was about. I don't even think 'Halvarez' aka Nelson Brady was treated so harshly. Remember, the ENTIRE INDUSTRY is watching.
“It is unfortunate that Monte’s actions will impact employees and clients of Moniker, the company he helped found.”
Actually this may be the biggest BULLSHIT here and there is a LOT if bullshit. It would seem that Oversee.net is PURPOSELY destroying what WAS the most trusted registrar in the business. That would explain many things. THAT makes sense considering what has gone on over the past months. I have now moved all but about 3 dozen domains from Moniker. The rest need special handling or just keep getting rejected for transfer.
They are FORCING customers to move. Let the employees of Moniker testify to that. They are just scared of losing their jobs at this point and NOW, now that THIS has happened, how much longer before they get thrown under the bus? Will they get fired if they testify in behalf of Monte? What kind of pressure they must be under.
The rest the courts will determine. And yes there are two sides. But with a history we have all witnessed with Oversee, there is a LOT to come out. You can only cover things up so long.
I wish I broke the Halvarez story. I could have gone 3 for 3. That was a CRIMINAL ACT that was handled in a way that created more questions then were answered. Wanna know why??? It is my STRONG OPINION/HUNCH that others in the domain industry and maybe at the same company would end up in the next cell. Maybe that will still happen. Personally, I NEVER believed he acted alone.
So we all need to do some serious thinking. Do you support this? THAT is the question. Does the Industry as a whole think Monte is getting the shaft? If you do, then it is time to come forward and say something. This is the time not to be afraid or intimidated. This is the time to stand up for something. And want to know why? Because when it happens to YOU, THIS will be the day that determines if anyone will care. Frankly, I don't have much hope or faith anymore in many who I used to. I'll just sit here and take arrows for YOU.
A contract is only as good as the folks who sign it. Just more proof how true this really is.
Have a GREAT Day!
