Last week, this e-mail was dropped in my inbox. All e-mails are translated from Norwegian by me, name and e-mail address also removed by me:

Subject: nice try

From: Vegard Xxxxxx Vegard.Xxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxxx.no

Date: 03.11.2005 15:10



but not very legal, is it…?

An interesting mail, I’ve obviously tried something which isn’t legal. Another interesting detail is that the guy shares my first name. I send this reply:

This is probably you:

Subject: Deleting a domain



Hi,



I’d like to have my domain www.vegard.xxx deleted immediately. Do I have

to send a form or is this a simple matter since it’s not a .no domain?

I’m using this e-mail address from now on.



Best regards



Vegard Xxxxxx



Didn’t work, of course.

Remembered you from this one: http://66.216.73.130/archives/167/



Hmm?

Vegard

So, basically, what this guy is doing is that he accuses me of being a domain hijacker! The nerve of some people! Based on a single e-mail sent from a gmail account created using his name and an entry I wrote three years ago, he now throws this in my face. The following day, I sent him this e-mail in return:

Subject: Re:SV:Re: nice try

Vegard,



The first time someone would accuse me of being a low life domain thief, I had
thought it would be with a little more hard evidence than an e-mail sent from a
gmail account and an entry I wrote almost three years ago. I lease the domain
vegard.net and is happy with that. I have no interest in vegard.xxx — unless
it becomes available of natural reasons.


So, no, this is not me.



Best regards,

Vegard Skjefstad

I haven’t heard anything back from him yet. Please, the next time you decide to throw anything like this at me, try to back it up with something a tad tighter. This is just ridiculous. Thank you.

Maybe the same person who tried to hijack his domain also tried to hijack mine. I don’t know, but I certainly don’t hope so.
