Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Friday April 21st

If you want to see a textbook case of what happens to your business when you let a negative culture develop,  look at Namepros.  Namepros staff is made up of some great people. Eric and James do a great job.  But in 2016 a few individuals started harassing certain posters and creating an us vs them culture at the site. To the point that the negativity at the site drove all the content creators away from the site. They just didn’t want to be attacked every time they posted.  Even long time user Raymond Hackney started to feel that the live chats and forums had gotten a little ugly.   Things have since been rectified and a few people were kicked out of the forum but it hasn’t recovered.  I don’t have traffic numbers but I guarantee its down.  I can’t guarantee it because they are actually up.My apologies  Because so many influencers left the conversation it just isn’t what it was. And the cycle continues.  Because the conversation isn’t interesting people don’t go daily anymore and the conversation diminishes even further.  Again, its not for the lack of hard work of the moderators and staff.  It just happened and what’s done is done.

It’s a reminder for all business owners how important it is to rid the bad apples before they spoil the bunch. Its why the saying even exists. Because they will.  Negativity is a pile on and it wreaks havoc and moves on.  Leaving the leftovers behind.  Things don’t all have to be rainbows and unicorns.  But lack of transparency and control will always open things up for problems.  There is no way to control shadows.  Nobody wants to enter a room with shadows and uncertainty except on Halloween.   Here are today’s names   Click for Current Price

    1. I think they can still be renewed or transferred until the completion of the auction, or single bid pre-release. I assume Sal’s was renewed, since it’s sitting at a high bid of $200 and in the “wish list” category.

  1. Some clarification:

    NamePros implemented Expectations for Respect and Constructiveness guidelines in January, 2015. We expect all members to behave professionally and present their opinions maturely, without invoking hostility or aggression, and without antagonizing others. We strictly enforce these expectations, and they are considered as significant as any other rule.

    NamePros moderators investigate matters like this and take immediate actions on accounts found in violation of the rules. If at any time you experience a situation that you reported and a moderator did not assist you in resolving it, please contact me directly so I can investigate the matter.

    In regards to NamePros traffic and use:

    We have more top domainers on the website than ever before. We’ve also had more unique visitors the last few months than any month in 2016. We had more than 158,000 individual people visit last month:

    If anyone needs assistance, please use the report feature on NamePros. For matters regarding moderators or more serious offenses, please report those to me directly via direct message (DM) or via email to my first name at

  2. I love Namepros and have never been attacked. Bloggers have to have a thicker skin because they’re in the public eye and prone to criticism.

    This post comes across as an exaggeration. There are countless content creators on Namepros: Michael Gilmour, Raymond Hackney, Ron Jackson, so on… I know one or two stopped posting but “drove all the content creators away” is insulting to the majority that are still there, your fellow bloggers.

    DSAD is one of my favorite blogs… I read every article and wish you would post there again because your witty posts were a highlight.

    1. Jonathan,

      I appreciate the comment. Other than Raymond, who are the bloggers that participate each day again? We all respond to things relating to us but when is the last time a blogger started a thread? Again, I’m not saying bloggers are special. Anyone can blog. And all my posts are exaggeration.

      1. I’ve never seen bloggers participate daily on a forum… don’t they have their own businesses and blogs to write for? I commented on when you said they all were drove away.

  3. Shane why do I have to reload this post multi-times for new comments to show up? Your reply wasn’t showing until I held the refresh button. Travis, help!
