You will recall that Oldham went through a phase of pretending to have “a legal team” headed by a fictitious solicitor called Paul Harper. This was mainly a device to enable him to cut off people who were demanding their money back after being double-billed for membership fees or receiving fake LFC memorabilia. He would refuse to discuss it with them. “Talk to my legal department,” he would say.
He then used his pretend “legal team” to try to steal the blog’s domain name like he has stolen the domain names of many LFC supporter sites and of the new owners of LFC.
Misrepresenting himself as a solicitor, he contacted the domain registrar GoDaddy to uncover the name of the person who had registered the domain name.
His fine legal mind became very befuddled by the distinction between the person who registered the domain name and the person who set up the blog – two completely different and unconnected people who did not know each other.
In effect, the domain owner had anonymously donated the domain to the blog.
The blog already had a domain name before that but decided to use the donated one because it worked better on search engines.
In his usual cack-handed manner, Oldham then started referring to the person who had registered the domain name as being “behind the blog” and he sent out slanderous and threating letters to that person full of false conspiracy theories. As I understand it from public exchanges, that person is now consulting his solicitor – a real solicitor – about the implications of Oldham’s rants.
Meanwhile, the original owner of the domain name transferred the ownership of the name to me.
This is just to let everyone know the domain has now been removed from GoDaddy, who have recently been in the news for stealing domain names from a trust registrar.
An extra year has been added to the registration, as well.
And what’s even more ironic, the registration of the blog’s domain was paid for with money I received from my cancelled subscription to Koptalk following my exposure of that matter on the blog.
So a big thanks to Dunk!
