It's been a while but some things have me come out of retirement. When it comes to REVERSE DOMAIN NAME HIJACKING, I want the WORLD to know about bad actors.
Twitter may be able to ban me and make me remove 3 or more of my posts but they can't do JACK SHIT about this blog, my domain nor HallofShame.com that has a new inductee today and either can he.
I called him an ASSHOLE on Twitter. Big deal!! In my opinion, he is an asshole! Seems you can threaten to burn down a city on Twitter but if you call an ASSHOLE an ASSHOLE the name-calling police come for you!
I am holding up the release of this post until my 12 hour suspension is over so that the link to this blog posts on Twitter.
Sahil Gupta aka @sahilAsAService on Twitter will have NO POWER when it comes to HallofShame.com. Just ask any of the HOTSHOT lawyers that are all listed. We keep it factual but it's hard not to sprinkle some emotion when you talk about a Reverse Domain Name Hijacker.
Sahil Gupta goes on a 25 post RANT on Twitter after losing an obvious decision. A first for any LOSER and CONVICTED REVERSE DOMAIN NAME HIJACKER that anyone remembers. Whining like a spoiled baby. Does he think a tantrum will help his brand and customers?
Branding a .io domain certainly was not the wisest decision to begin with. But for the $15,000 he saved being CHEAP Sahil Gupta just bought a HORNETS NEST and still does not have the domain. The domain that could have allowed him to grow his company. Now he is FUCKED! He poisoned the well. To buy that name now, the price is somewhere between $100k and NO FUCKING WAY!!
"1/n I'm Sahil Gupta and I run Spase, http://spase.io, and I can handle abuse but this is just a level of bullshit that can't go uncorrected."
"2/n What pushed me over the edge is this. Mrs Jello LLC, you've fucked with the wrong guy."
Sounds like a nice guy huh? It gets worse! But that is not a threat?? Why is that not removed?
What makes this particularly outrageous is the domain Spase.com that was trying to be hijacked by Sahil Gupta was owned by the widow of the late Igal Lichtman. (Mrs Jello) and a friend to many Domain Investors including myself!
According to the filing The Complainant’s business was incorporated as Spase, Inc. in February 2019. But the domain Sahil Gupta attempted to HIJACK was registered in 2005. OUTRAGEOUS! What an idiot! What a fool! What a moron. Is this what kind of people YALE produces?? Is Yale proud of Sahil Gupta?
So when I was informed of this I was outraged and when I saw the nasty responses and the names he was calling domainers, we had no choice other than to fight back and fight back HARD!
You can read his entire 25 comment rant HERE
But here are some of his comments to Domainers:
So since there is no legal penalty for Reverse Domain Name Hijacking in the form of jail time or substantial imposed fine, we have to circulate the FACTS and have Sahil Gupta deal with the fallout of HIS ACTIONS!! FOREVER!
If Sahil Gupta actually went to Yale and graduated......then you might come to certain conclusions and it certainly is not a good reflection on them and their idea of Capitalism.
Let's be clear, Sahil Gupta is an arrogant MORON and he is NFG! That's MY PERSONAL OPINION and it's also my PROFESSIONAL OPINION and I think it is shared with 99.9% of all professional domain investors and even others. We don't like THIEVES!!! This was an attempted theft by an abuse of the process and by any reasonable standard.
Sahil Gupta has to deal with this FOREVER! He can't run to Twitter and have this post pulled down. It's here FOREVER as well. That's the PRIME reason to own your own domain name. Do you want the Masters of the Universe to censor you?? To decide what is permitted? To protect the BAD GUY?
He NOW has a home on HallofShame.com just click the link to see it!
If anything is not 100% factual, I invite Sahil Gupta to point it out ASAP right here in the comment section. If not, I will assume it is FACTUAL!
But before my 12 hour Twitter ban started I asked for unanimous consent in making this CHUMP named Sahil Gupta aka @sahilAsAService become the NEW POSTER BOY for REVERSE DOMAIN NAME HIJACKING. He would replace Márcio Mello Chaves and the SaveMe.com decision who has been the poster boy since 2012. Congrats Sahil. It's a worldwide distinction.
So I posted on Twitter: "By acclamation can we make Sahil Gupta aka @sahilAsAService the 2020 POSTER BOY for REVERSE DOMAIN NAME HIJACKING? Please respond by Posting your "Hear Hear" HERE! A special Poster will be made in his DISHONOR!"
And a sea of "Hear Hear" was posted. Domainers had harsh words for Sahil Gupta and it won't be stopping anytime soon. Please post your thoughts and feelings about this below and being called "Trolls".
So in the hours ahead the new poster will be unveiled and your job is to CIRCULATE, CIRCULATE, CIRCULATE!
I thnk the right thing to do is to APOLOGIZE to Igal's widow and reimburse her for her legal fees. I'm sure he won't because HE seems to be without any character or class. But what should any of us expect from a CONVICTED REVERSE DOMAIN NAME HIJACKER.
Sahil Gupta of Spase.io was convicted by an esteemed 3 member International panel of a worldwide organization. The World Intellectual Property Organization out of Geneva, Switzerland. The only thing standing in the way of this PRICK stealing a domain he had NO LEGAL OR MORAL RIGHTS TO were these 3 fair-minded panelists!
He was too CHEAP to pay the lousy $15,000 for the domain. It was a CHEAP price! He was just too ignorant to realize it. But now he get THIS BLOG POST for FREE! He is a HEADLINER on HallofShame.com for FREE. And in the days ahead Google will circulate his deeds throughout the world and it will follow him FOREVER for FREE!!
Here is what THEY said in THIR decision:
"In the Panel’s view, the record in this case evinces that the Complaint was brought in bad faith within the meaning of the applicable provisions of the Policy and Rules. As previously noted, the Respondent registered the disputed domain name <spase.com> in February 2005, and had used the disputed domain name to generate PPC revenues for some (14) years prior the Complainant’s adoption of the SPASE name. The Complainant, after unsuccessfully attempting purchase the disputed domain name from the Respondent, then filed a groundless Complaint. See, e.g., GIGS United S.L. v. SIE MANTIC, WIPO Case No. D2014-1689; Personal Communication Systems, Inc. v. CDN Properties Incorporated, WIPO Case No. D2014-0664.
For the foregoing reasons, the Complaint is denied. The Panel further finds that the Complaint was brought in bad faith and constitutes an abuse of the administrative proceeding.

Sahil Gupta has to live with the consequences of HIS ACTIONS and HIS ACTIONS ONLY!! When you do a search for Sahil Gupta in a few weeks, this hijacking will be the first thing everyone sees. CIRCULATE! CIRCULATE! CIRCULATE!!
Frands Jepsen tried to steal Queen.com from me. Punch that name into Google and see what you get FIRST! Same with Márcio Mello Chaves who tried to steal SaveMe.com. There are others. Some of the lawyers that represented the hijackers and therefore IMHO aided and abetted cuz they knew better!!! For example Marie Lykke Kristiansen. She was the attorney for the attempted Queen.com hijacking.
Domainers consider Sahil Gupta a THIEF! Just cuz he did not get away with it has no bearing at how the domain industry looks at him and everyone else that ever tried this CRAP! He is considered a low-life THIEF!
I hope Attorney Stevan Lieberman is aggressive and goes for the $100k penalty for his client. If Sahil Gupta wants to learn the hard way, oblige him!!
If you would like to read the backstory, you can read it at here at DomainInvesting.com or read the decision itself HERE Another story about his Twitter rant can be found at DomainNameWire.com
*The REVERSE DOMAIN NAME HIJACKING POSTER BOY banner should be ready later today and I will update this blog post with it. Feel free to copy and CIRCULATE FAR and WIDE!!
