A discussion about the breaking of the Internet
Mike Roberts

Well. There’s so much fail in this situation it’s even hard to find a place for me to start.

  1. You rely on code that’s versioned 0.0.3 in your production setup.
  2. In javascript you have to load a module from the internet to format (pad) strings.
  3. Your “polite request” includes “Let’s not involve lawyers in this”, which is a equivalent of “it’d be a shame if something happened to your ….”.
  4. After receiving refusal you follow up on threat to take over a name by force, so it was not “polite” nor “request”. You were from the start going to take the name, by whatever means necessery.
  5. Now you try to do some form of damage control that only paints you in even worse light.

Good start :)
