What's Taking ICM Registry so Long to Finalize This "Performers Program"?
I wanted my dot XXX long before they even announced a Performers Program. It was “reserved by ICM” when I went to check its status on Whois website. I hadn’t even inquired about it yet. Someone had reserved it prior to me. I asked about who and that’s when they refused to tell me. They also refused to let me buy it, though I wanted to, I inquired about it, I even went through the steps to do so under their Sunrise A program but they blocked me. When I asked who tried to purchase it prior to me, they said “that information is confidential”. That’s why they couldn’t let me buy it under Sunrise A; they would have had to tell me who tried to buy it. So, they scrambled to create a Performers Program, a ‘special’ program which denies us access to the records that other customers of dot xxx are entitled to! They just would not let me buy it! I own the dot com and have grandfathered it. Owned the dot com longer than iFriends/Webpower has owned the dot net of my name. What did ICM do? Rather than let me buy it, they just shoved me into this Performers Program (currently held in an ‘escrow’ account), which the details are still not ready. I’ve been waiting since october to hear something about this program. Nothing. Not a word. Still waiting. I’ve tweeted to them several times, and always the same response “soon”. This is really taking long. Are ICM Registry (and the lawyers they share with Webpower/iFriends) just too busy counting all their ‘chickens’ before they hatch? Perhaps they’re just counting their money, as we perfomers, who are “so important” to ICM Registry, count the days until they finally decide to let us in on the little secret that is their agreement and all the juicy terms and fancy lawyer wording, whose sole intention is to confuse, insult and baffle our minds to the point where we pass out, in a form resembling the mannequins that so cheaply portrayed us in their pathetic ads, trying to convince the world that porn was all moving to .XXX. Like hell it is! Hey ICM, lawyer up all you want, but you’re not dealing with a dummy here, as your ads suggest how low you really think of us performers. Take your cheap degrading, classless, corny, bubble-brained ads and shove them up your ass, where they belong.
Anyway, here’s a little humour, from one of the little ‘mannequin’ people. You might like this, ICM! It should provoke you to want to respond, but please, leave D-Man out of this. He was rather rude and quite transparent. Wouldn’t want to embarrass yourselves further, would you? Let’s not go down that road again. 😉
