    Default PokerStrategy.com Trying To Steal Domains From Webmasters

    I believe both of the below threads show enough evidence (including proof of prior history) to show that the tactics pokerstrategy.com is engaging in here are bullish, and possibly even illegal.

    I'm not personally involved here, but I believe the industry needs to stick together on this one. For what it's worth, we first saw this from PokerStrategy.com a year ago, and the practice hasn't changed.

    Not worth worrying about. The words are too generic and would never stand up in a court of law.

    Using the same logic, poker.com could take every domain with poker in it. Nonsense.

    I agree - however they have using this tactic for over a year now, I think webmasters who might otherwise be scared into giving away a domain (or entire site!) by these bullies might be served by seeing these threads and knowing they aren't alone or in trouble.

    Ty for moving although I still think it warrants display in the news forum as well. No probs with title editing or whatever if that's a bit over the top, maybe a better one is a question: "Is PokerStrategy.com practicing extortion against webmasters?"

    I really dislike those who use tactics which prey upon and take advantage of small affiliates.

    It's nice to see those with the available resources fight this fight for those that could not.

    If an affiliate program is not small affiliate friendly (especially small US Affiliate), then they are NOT Affiliate Friendly!
