Goatse.cx Is For Sale

kdawson posted more than 6 years ago | from the dept.-would-be-redundant dept.

It's funny.  Laugh. 211

fm6 writes "The domain goatse.cx is being auctioned. Bidding, at the time of posting, has reached $15K after 109 bids (with 6 days to go). Some of you will recall that this site used to be linked in a lot of Slashdot articles, despite having only a few pages. Boing Boing, with their usual creativity, has managed to depict Goatse's most commonly linked photo while still remaining within the bounds of good taste."

The people familiar in details with all the shock sites are a certain subculture, and certainly doesn't make up the history of the Internet.

As I understand it, back in the early days of the internet, the kind of enthusiasts who make up today's subculture were a significant proportion of the userbase. Just by being there, they were a target market, and helped the whole thing to grow. Just because AOL came along and reduced them to a subculture doesn't mean they aren't part of the internet's history.

And besides, who cares about the internet's ability to concentrate even more wealth into even fewer hands? I can guarantee that in 300 years, the history teachers won't be telling their classes about how the internet was really profitable and made a select few very rich. They'll tell of how it connected the world and got us all communicating at an unprecedented level (assuming they even mention it at all).

Sure, the signal-to-noise ratio sucks, and half the time all we're communicating is a picture of a guy stretching his ass with his hands, but at least that's more interesting than some dotcom's record quarterly report.

That sure is an article, and not a gaping goatse.cx man's bum. I did not find it a very interesting read, unfortunately. In fact, I don't even think Richard Dawkins wrote that. I mean, it's a picture of a gaping asshole, not an article. It's kind of hard to read or write one of those.

It has now become a contest of who is able to write the largest number. I tried bidding 9!!!!!!!!! just to see if they understand what a factorial is, but it required me to log in. I'm not going to create a fake account just for that lame joke.


Anyhow, there's a good moral lesson here. The .cx domain registrars revoked the site name just because they didn't like its content. Now who would want to buy a domain name they can lose anytime at the registrar's whim? As in any business, there is a question of trust here, if you can't trust the registrar the domain is worthless.


Besides, it's not as if there didn't exist plenty of sick sites [google.com] out there. I don't like those, but who am I to judge? As long as it's nothing criminal, let it be...

If they did it once, they can do it again. Why would I want to pay out tens of thousands of dollars for a site when that could happen?

Even if I got that money returned, I'd assume that someone willing to spend that amount of money would have spent more money on, or be receiving more income from the site which they *wouldn't* get back.

.cx domains are worthless (5, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#18830919)

Goatse was a culturally significant internet meme and the domain was suspended (revoked) because some kook at the registrar found the content tasteless. There's plenty of content I find tasteless online, Goatse was nowhere near as offensive to me as the GWB presidency yet I'm not about to start pressuring ICANN to withdraw the domains registered by pro-bush news sites.

Dot cx (now CIIA) set a dangerous precedent in revoking the goatse domain, content regulation via DNS is nothing more than an abuse of power. cx domains are worthless, the registry has established it will pull domains if they don't like the content. Avoid.

This is bigger news than all that crap at Virginia Tech, yet no mention of it on CNN, BBC etc....

Anyone notice the seller? (2, Informative)

It's being auctioned on SEOBidding.com - as in, Search Engine Optimization - not the nice, XHTML+accessibility+no-broken-links kind of SEO, but the scum-of-the-earth kind that snaps up a domain where the registration has lapsed, and puts up a site with a) ads and b) links to other sites, so they can steal the page-rank.

As for the auction, I hope they choke on it.

If I were a campaign adviser in the upcoming US federal elections, buying goatse.cx would be perfect.

TV AD:

Voting for candidate A is bad.
He'll raise taxes.
Ruin the economy.
And, he doesn't like children.
Basically, he's a asshole.
(cut to the infamous picture).
On election day, don't vote for A.
Vote for a candidate that cares. Vote for B.
