    Norton-Sucks.com
    Well, nortonsucks.com was taken, but the runner up was available.

    Looking for contributions of material to use on the site along with multimedia proof of what Norton is doing.

    Haiko will have to let me know if it is permissable to display an email address to send your stories, text, etc. to.

    Yeah, I don't have any off hand but finding content to fill that site should not be a problem.

    Lightbulb Phpbb
    Hadn't really thought about it -- Sounds like a pretty good idea though. The site has PHP/MySQL available.

    One thing the site won't contain is advertising.

    I'll set up the initial website and if you're interested in assisting in the project, let me know.

    A couple of things could be useful for brainstorming:

    Content categories to secionalize the website and provide navigation.

    Anyone want to come up with a logo or two?

    Other ideas for content areas/sections are appreciated.

    I advise my visitors with Norton or McAfee to buy Panda AV -- better yet, I can just sell it to them and make a commish.

    Probably not a good idea if you have a trademarked name as part of your domain name.

    I do not follow your comment g-g. Was making more of a general comment. Certainly don't put it on nortonsucks.com

    fclark: When I rereead your message - I understand now.

    Some of the areas I want to cover are

    1) History - Step through that version and subsequent releases
    2) Demonstration of what Norton is doing including screen shots
    3) Impact on affiliate marketing web sites and others.
    4) Who is exempt from blocking
    5) What information do we have that would establish that Norton is violating any Federal / State laws by their default settings.

    Anyone have other areas (or elaborations on the areas above) to include on the website?

    Better Late than Never
    Yep, ole George beat me to it. Guess I thought about it too long (primarily legal research to see what I could or couldn't do with a sucks domain).

    Haiko ownes the copyright on the postings on ABW so I really cannot just start scrapping posts regarding Norton from ABW and place it on norton-sucks.com

    If you would like to contribute material to the site, send it to norton-sucks@gjenvick-gjonvik.com

    I'll be happy to put up phpbb if someone can walk me through the set up (send me a pm)[img]images/icons/icon7.gif[/img]

    Norton 2005 ships with default ad blocking off
    Just been informed that the newest version of Norton My NIS 2005 shipped to me with default ad blocking OFF

    Appears that the many articles that appeared had an effect on Norton.

    Anyone interested in puchasing the norton-sucks.com domain?

    Noble effort - just a tad late.

    Guess I'll switch my attention to Google (google-sucks.us) though this site will be more personal in nature as I watch all my sites that existed on 12/16/2004 become totally void of Google traffic. Google, so far, has stuck to their "partial indexing" explanation.

    Maybe your source was so busy taking credit for having influenced Norton that they didn't actually test the product?

    Billy.

    Are you suggesting that we go ahead and launch norton-sucks.com? I think it was two versions that had ads blocked by default. Guess it might depend on how Norton updates the older versions - whether it changes the default or relies on the consumer to switch it, if so inclined.

    Let me know a little more on your thoughts to a consumer friendly info site.
