Misleading use of .tels??????
 
Dodgy? use of .tels

Large number of registrations today by the same organisation all with misleading intent.

see 
walkingshoes.tel
cheapclothes.tel
cheapshoes.tel
wilhelm.tel
etc,etc,etc they appear to number in the hundreds, all pointing to sale of iphones

I can't think of a better way to help sink .tel than to use it like this,as a consumer I hate being duped into going to a site under false pretences, if there are going to be hundreds or more of these type I can't see anything positive, surely Telnic can't approve of this.

Imagine that millions of .tel's exist just like millions of websites do.

What's on them ? Anything and everything.

Google never makes any claim as to the content of websites, and we should not
expect anything different with TelPages.

Verification service is exactly what this is for.

If the expectation is for more, look for more on the page, and be willing to support the service that provides that "more".

Absolutely right Cees, it's a pretty daft idea to try and dupe consumers with multiple .tel domains all showing an ad as the only content that bears absolutely no relation to the domain name.

The domains http://walkingshoes.telhttp://cheapclothes.tel and http://cheapshoes.tel appear to have been set up using Telnic's redirection facility, which as I have explained in a previous post will result in some or all of the domains being downgraded and/or de-indexed once the search engines discover duplicate content under different domain names.

So no real income for the domain owner and discrediting for the .tel extension - not a very bright idea from the owner of the domains, who is hiding under a veil of secrecy - see http://www.easywhois.com/?domain=walkingshoes.tel for what I mean.

You can't stop this sort of thing, but at least take consolation that the owner won't make any real money from it and their domains will become worthless once the search engines de-index some or all of them due to the duplicate content.

I think the owner should populate them with minimal related content. Easy enough to do with Park My Tel. For instance, two days ago I bought www.ThermalImaging.tel on the drop and populated it (although have a typo in all the subdomain names).

I was going to say, anyone can put whatever legal content they want to on their .tel. and wouldn't it be a great if for once people looked at the forum and found it full of positive ideas on ways to use, promote, support and sell. With exciting stories, offers of free help, discussions on successes and why they succeed. 

Instead of members trying to tell Telnic what they should and shouldn't do. Owners what they should and shouldn't do. What was once a vibrant forum, now consists of members who appear to know what is best for everybody, owners, guests, new members and Telnic alike. 

I was going to say the above, but instead I just decided to wish you all a Happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Thanks for the removal of my previous post I don't know what I was thinking?, I regretted posting it almost immediately.
