With all the coverage on all the blogs and forums it certainly seems that March 16, was Chef Patrick’s Day.
You got plenty of coverage and a lot of opinions. They range from blaming Patrick,to blaming Rick Schwartz for making it a bigger deal then some think.
The thread at Namepros.com was mostly split as younger people for the most part did not see it as that big of a deal, while others saw it as a breach of privacy that was very serious. You can read that here http://www.namepros.com/industry-news/706985-elephant-room-chef-patrick-oversee-breach.html
The Dnforum.com thread is 80 comments deep you can read that here http://www.dnforum.com/f17/another-scandal-rocks-domain-world-rick-schwartz-outs-chef-patrick-thread-450259.html
Of course the post that started it all can be read at www.ricksblog.com
The most intersting comment of all for me was that of long time Myrtle Beach domainer Marcia Lynn Walker who posted she will be starting a site about Chef Patrick. This was posted on Ricks Blog.
Although I loathe spending another dime that’ll see no monetary return regarding self-aggrandizing cook patrick, I just regged crookpatrick.com and will, as my 1st amendment rights allow, blog about my experience dealing with him, as well as allow the input of the various industry people who’ve contacted me telling me he’s ripped them off, too.
I’ll also include links to sites and blogs that detail his unethical activities since he entered this industry in 2008.
So consider this a heads up patsy boy – and no, there’s no whois privacy involved.
Happy St. Patrick’s to everyone and be safe out there.
