I thought it was pretty cool that Escrow.com had the back of Kate Buckley the other day. If you hadn’t heard, a NamesPro user named OffTheHandle (anyone who knows his real name please email it to me so I can give him proper credit) accused Kate Buckley of lying about her sales. While she was under an NDA, Escrow was nice enough to say that the name was sold for seven figures and they did the escrow to prove it. They didn’t have to do that and could have used privacy an excuse but they knew that give a vague answer without details would be enough to prove that Kate is telling the truth without hurting the buying party. Especially since it was already announced publicly that it sold for millions.
Kudos to Jackson for the nice gesture. As for offthehandle. I told Kate to leave it be. You don’t fuck with shadows. Namepros makes nobody accountable for their words so everyone is free to say whatever they want unless its a little off topic and THEN they swoop in like Superman and remove the post. But accuse someone of lying about a million dollar sale, try and slander their name, and harm their reputation all with no proof? Let that one stay. We’re cool. It’s just an opinion. Fortunately Kate didn’t listen to me and publicly released a response. Of course OffTheHandle has responded with exactly nothing..Crickets. Like the shadow he is. It’s a shame. Because their are so many great people on Namepros but they are being overshadowed by the bad apples and monsters.

This report represents the culmination of the Commission’s work over the last three years, offering a cyberstability framework, principles, norms of behavior, and recommendations for the international community and wider ecosystem.
“Earlier this year, 28 EU-member states backed a framework for sanctions targeting malicious cyber activities. Today, the GCSC consolidates a set of norms and principles for behavior of state and non-state actors. This is an important contribution to a digital space in which order and peace must prevail,” commented Stef Blok, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, a co-founder of the GCSC. “Since stability in cyberspace is directly linked with stability in the ‘real world,’ such a cyberstability framework is more crucial than ever. The next step in this multilateral process is to collect evidence and hold those who break the rules responsible. Together we must increase accountability and combine all pieces of the puzzle, between governments, tech and security firms, and civil society.”
The work of the Commission originated out of a desire to address rising social and political instability as a result of malicious actions in cyberspace. The situation has further deteriorated as evidenced by the rise in the number and sophistication of cyber attacks by state and non-state actors, which increasingly puts the considerable benefits of cyberspace at risk. In this increasingly volatile environment, there is an apparent lack of mutual understanding and awareness among communities working on issues related to international cybersecurity. With this report, the GCSC seeks to contribute to international efforts to address these challenges.
“Cyberstability and governance are inextricably and naturally linked,” added Michael Chertoff, GCSC Co-Chair. “As the digital age evolves so rapidly, governments and societies lack the desired level of exchange, let alone the decision-making processes needed to ensure the stability of cyberspace. The GCSC’s effort complements the work of other organizations, and will serve to influence how critical actors can engage with one another and collaborate towards a stable cyberspace.”
Emphasizing a concerted, multistakeholder approach, the framework reflects technological, product and operational measures, as well as a focus on behavioral change required among all stakeholders.
“The publication of this final report is not the end, but rather the beginning of a new profound effort toward implementing the suggested principles, norms, and recommendations,” stated Latha Reddy, GCSC Co-Chair. “The onus is on all stakeholders—governments, industry, civil society—to collaborate, adopt and implement accepted practices to help strengthen cyberstability. The stakes are higher than ever, which dictates a response in kind.”
Following the release, the GCSC members will continue to advocate and engage with their respective communities. Input and feedback from these groups were reflective of interactions with both state and non-state experts and will form the basis of advocating for the report going forward.
About the Commission
Launched at the 2017 Munich Security Conference, the mission of the Global Commission on the Stability of Cyberspace is to develop proposals for norms and policies to enhance international security and stability and guide responsible state and non-state behavior in cyberspace. The Commission helps to promote mutual awareness and understanding among the various cyberspace communities working on issues related to international cybersecurity.

LOS ANGELES – 13 November 2019 – ICANN's Supporting Organizations (SOs) and Advisory Committees (ACs) are invited to nominate one individual each (total of seven) to serve as a mentor in the ICANN Fellowship Program.
Mentors will serve a term that includes three consecutive ICANN Public Meetings, beginning with ICANN68. They will provide extensive pre-meeting preparation and on-site support for their assigned fellows, as well as complete a survey after each meeting.
Mentors are expected to follow Fellowship Program guidelines to help ensure consistency in capacity development opportunities for fellows. They also play an important role to help fellows actively participate in ICANN's work. Mentors will receive travel funding support.
It should be noted that mentors cannot serve on the Fellowship Program's Selection Committee at the same time they are serving as mentors.
For more information on the guidelines and expectations for mentors, please read about the program here.
The SOs/ACs should first select their respective Fellowship Program mentor by 31 January 2020, and notify firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual self-nominations will not be considered.
ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
Not too often does an expired 4N.com make it to the last day on GoDaddy auctions. They usually get renewed, but 4600.com is past 30 days expired and cannot be renewed as it’s registered at GoDaddy.
The auction is currently at $51,000. Only 14 reported 4N.com sales in 2019. 2018 had 25 reported sales and 2017 had 32 reported sales.
With only 1000 of these highly sought after domains, fewer and fewer are becoming available. Of course these are most popular in China, and the registrant of 4600.com looks to have been Chinese.
Usually combinations with a 4 or a 0 are not as popular with the Chinese investor.
We will see where this name closes as today is the last day of the auction.
Today: Adding emoji’s in email subject / Gold, silver, and bullion etc related domains – Budget: Up to $25,000.00 / The best domains which failed to generate profit for your business / and More…
Here are the new discussions that caught my eye in the domain community today:
Buying Qubit, Quantum dot com domain – Budget: Up to $10,000.00 – Do you have any qubit or quantum .com domain names in your portfolio? Take a look at this buyers specified guidelines to see if you have what they need.
Google sues ‘poor’ London cab driver who named his company Goooglie – You really need to be careful, on or off-line when branding your business. This is just another example of a bad idea. What do you think?
Gold, silver, and bullion etc related domains – Budget: Up to $25,000.00 – Be sure to check your portfolio for one of these gold, silver, or bullion precious metal domain names. This buyer is ready to help you liquidate for some fast capital if you’re is the one they want.
The best domains which failed to generate profit for your business – Take a look at what some domain name investors had huge hopes for and fell short with. Do you have an experience like that since you’ve been investing in domains? Share your story too.
Adding emoji’s in email subject – Have you ever used emoji’s in your outbound email subject line to try and get more attention to your email? Do end-users have more trust in emails with or without emoji’s? Take a look at what some domain investors are saying.
520hb.com sold for $5,600 – That’s not a bad domain name sales report for a three-number + two-letter (five-character) .com domain for a mid-four-figures. Do you think it should have sold for more or less than what it sold for?
Today’s Marketplace/Auction Picks:
In case you were living in a cave yesterday, I’ll give you a quick update. A troll on NamePros hiding behind the username @offthehandle attacked successful domain broker Kate Buckley – no data, no proof. I first read about this on TheDomains and since then a number of bloggers have covered the incident.
Some of the most well-respected people in the domain industry have weighed in on this issue, here’s comments from a few:
Shane from DSAD.com put together a list of three things that need to happen and I think he’s spot on with these. If @offthehandle can insult Kate publicly and call her out by name, he shouldn’t be allowed to hide behind an anonymous name, that’s about as cowardly as you can get. I also agree that NamePros should ban this member – letting someone get away with this only hurts the reputation of NamePros IMO.
The silver lining with all of this is that it has been great to see the domain community come together for Kate. Just look at any of the blog posts about the incident and you’ll find countless people who have come to Kate’s defense and shared how disappointed they are to hear about @offthehandle’s ridiculous accusations with absolutely no data or proof to back them up.
I hope NamePros does the right thing here. I think they should take Shane’s advice and do the three things he suggests, it will be good for their reputation and for the community.
