    Wow, this sounds like SnapNames is going gangster on its own brothers.

    ***UPDATED BY ELLIOT*** These two companies aren’t related.

    Yes, I know they are unrelated. My reference to “going gangster on its own brothers” means that it’s one (big) domainer going after another (small) domainer. It’s like infighting within the family and that’s not good for the industry.
