That's a sub-10mil ranking. I could understand if you were balking over a top 500k domain name or something, but the only traffic going to your site is your mom looking at your pictures and myself and my friend who wants to buy your domain. Your number one link into your site is "remove powered by coppermine" and that's not even on page 1 of google results.
I don't mean to insult you. But regardless of sentimentality, $2,000 for a sub-10mil domain (and apparently not even any changes to your site itself because madhatt.net refers back to your site) is money in your pocket.
Are you sure you don't want to be madhatt.net and $2,000 richer?
Wow... Well if I didn't want to sell before now I really don't!
I remained civil and simply responded with
Thanks but my sentimentality is worth more to me than a measly $2k, or $5k for that matter.
So What do you do when a company won't stop emailing/calling you?
Well, I'm in that boat... I have a company that won't stop bugging me. So now, every time I get a piece of spam or a phone call from them I just send a special command to my phone system. This triggers the system to place a call to the company and play a recording I made that asks them to stop emailing and calling me. Of course for fun it also 'rickrolls' them "nice background music"
Legal? I'm not 100% sure but I think it should be since the recording states that the call is in response to a solicitation from them.
So recently I had a issue with someone. They were dicks and stole couple hundred bucks from me by "deactivating" a product I purchased.... This deactivation process entails the software I PURCHASED turning off every 30 minutes.
Yes, Yes, Yes, I know, what a dick move, and probably illegal. So to begin with I decided to fight it. Not by suing as they dared me too. But by calling and asking for them to pay me. Over, and over, and over, and over again.
Thank goodness for Asterisk!
How to robocall someone with Asterisk
Record a WAV file of yourself saying what you would like to the caller. Place this file in /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/
Create a file stored somewhere, I'll call it, asshole.call
Inside this file put in something like this.
callerid: "You dick" <5552222222>
The number 5551111111 represents the number you wish to call.
The number 5552222222 represents the number you wish to display in their caller ID.
The section Data: audio-recording represents the name of the file (no spaces) that contains your recorded message (minus the .WAV)
Create a quick and dirty script that will do 2 things. We'll call this script /callasshole
1. copy the call file to /var/spool/asterisk/outgoing/ and 2. change the owner to asterisk so that the phone system will process it.
