Can't confirm it, but just heard that Register.com bought itself another white elephant by purchasing Shoutloud.com (?????) and has plans to merge with Afternic.

That is just too much. Richard Foreman, someone has to remove the crack pipe from your mouth. :laugh:

With a bit of luck, register.com could mop up all the useless listing sites before they decide to pull the plug on them all.

At least it might stop all those dumb emails i get offering me worse variations of domains I already own. :)

Sedo had all that cash and...blew it. They seemed a natural. How difficult is it to do Afternic all over again...just in Europe.

The fact that Foreman chose not to improve Afternic, but instead plough more cash into another company tells you something about his apparently flawed mindset.

He had it all with Afternic, but blew it, blew it, blew it. Incredible. :laugh:

the register.com/afternic.com and verisign.com/greatdomains.com acquisitions really do end up looking like a corporate "p*ssing contest" that went badly wrong.

e-mail from customer support @shoutloud.com today

We wanted to apprise you of significant changes here at ShoutLoud.

At the end of this month ShoutLoud's operations will cease and all
ShoutLoud.com traffic will be directed to domain name exchange
Afternic.com. You may know that Afternic is part of our new parent
company, Register.com.

Regardless of whether you intend to list your names with Afternic
(apart from membership, Afternic collects no fees from sellers), you
should be aware of Afternic's parking program which is offered
free-of-charge and requires no exclusivity or other commitment from
sellers.

Domain names that resolve to Afternic's parking page are clearly
identified as available for sale, and prompt visitors to make qualified
offers that are sent to you directly. Again, there is no fee or
membership requirement to participate in this program. Please contact
Trip Todd at ttodd@register.com for more information.

On behalf of ShoutLoud.com I would like to thank you for your custom
and wish you continued success with your domain name sales.

Kind regards
Stephen Etheridge
