Yes, I know it's over.  Yes, I know it's been over for a long time.  But still...

Was working on an old PC that I'm passing on to my nephew.  Was looking through IE on it, when I happened upon this:

www.gonegold.com

Even now, to see it reduced to that gets me sick.

From what I understand you might want to slap a NSFW warning on that link.  Of course, if anyone reads this before they click, then it'll be irrelevant. However, if they are click happy then  :icon_eek:

No worries, just didn't want to see someone click on that and get a 'surprise'  icon_smile

Just so you know, Mitch put 100 bucks of his own money on the line to try to secure the domain (backorder) to prevent this from happening.  We wanted to spare the community another indignity after seeing what they did to ConsoleGold.   Sadly, it wasn't to be.

Hey, I'm sure it's appreciated by one and all that you guys tried.

It says a lot to me that Rich couldn't even be bothered to make sure the corpse wasn't abused, if you know what I mean.

Oh, that was you guys - sorry about that.  We went as high as $1,150 before we realized we were up against a pr0n mogul and gave up.

It's weird how someone would want those domain names for porn links.  I guess you could twist GoneGold into something porn related, but ConsoleGold?   icon_rolleyes

Pretty sure porn spammers just want as many domains as possible.  If it used to be a funcitoning site that folks have bookmarked, that's even better.

Both 'Gold' sites are behind me in the past and I no longer give them any thought whatsoever unless a thread like this keeps popping up. Move along and let it go.  icon_smile

That's pretty much true. I was willing to go up to $150 but that's about all I cared for it. The final bill wound up being between $1500 and $2000 I think.

Bleck. More like GoneGoldenShowers.com. That's unfortunate.

Just spam now.. although I woudn't click on any of those links anyway because of the risk of all the pop-ups and potential viruses that come with those kind of "sites". (Have it in quotes because there are plenty of legit adult sites out there, Stiffler's very own BBW Facesitting for example.  icon_wink)

Been a long time since GoneGold closed and while I never really looked to close as to why it happened, I've likewise put it in the past and what's done is done.. although it did take me a good week to stop typing "consolegold.com" in the address bar before I finally got used to gamingtrend.

Meh. Let it go. We all have new and better stuff now. I'm much more thankful for what we have now than what we used to.
