    Changing Golddisk.net to Anti-Spam?

    Hello everyone,
    I have an idea and plan to start something along these lines, and was wondering what people thought.

    I currently own GoldDisk.net

    If you haven't heard, golddisk.net was the domain that one of the biggest spammers in the world used.

    Just go to Yahoo in their News Section and type in Golddisk.net
    You will see tons of articles regarding the domain and the people that were sued regarding it.
    Nevermind, Here's the search link http://news.search.yahoo.com/search/...p=golddisk.net

    Here's a nice Drawing Yahoo! made for the spammers and domain as well:
    http://us.i1.yimg.com/us.yimg.com/i/...gr_abuse_2.jpg


    I plan on changing golddisk.net into a service like spamcop or some type of anti-spam website.

    Just wondering what people think before I actually do this. Altho, I would like to see the faces of the guys who actually started it when they see what golddisk.net becomes .

    So any input is appreciated.
    If anyone wants to help in on the creation of the site, put that in your post as well. If not, I can handle it.

    Another anti - spam website, maybe you should let users download free software preventing it.

    you could have people donate to the anti-spam cause.
    Also, offering tutorials on how to stay spam-free and how to keep yourself safe... stuff like that

    You own 'golddisk' and it seems the spam came from 'goldisk', a different domain... just similar

    Hello,
    Thanks everyone for the responses.

    But Jim, I'm pretty sure it is Golddisk.net

    With Two D's. All the Stories in the papers, everything Shows Golddisk.net

    That second link where it shows the domain is just a misspelling. Plus goldisk.net (what they put in that picture) is available and there are no articles of anytype regarding goldisk.net.

    This is for Golddisk.net


    I like everyone's ideas. thanks so far for the input.
