No Sporeworks doesn't run Sporebank.
They are 2 seperate Vendors.
Sporebank does sell SporeWorks products though.
They are a reseller.

I believe that same site is also linked to the adress;
www.theshroomery.org
instead of
www.shroomery.org

Lame lame lame lame lame.

..has your business really been boomin enough to take legal action$?

II think that 99% of people will notice that their site is B.S.
-it sure is set up nice though, isn't it.?
--looks like someone with some decent web design/web building experience is behind this sharade.

Hi Ralpster,
Thats horrible!  If someones business is so bad that they need to ride the coat tails of someone as respected as yourself, well..... its just a shame. 

On a brighter side... you do have a very good case from a legal standpoint.

A few years ago there was a little trick called "Hijacking an IP".  Its really quite simple, someone does a WHOIS lookup of your domain and simply changes the DNS server information.  It happened for sometime until someone redirected aol.com to their site.  :smile: 

This happened with Madonna too.  Someone had www.madaonna.com (an italian fan) who was illegally selling her merchandise, he changed it to www.madonnas.com but he was still persecuted for "domain squatting".

PM if you want more details. 

If you were to take legal action I would bet that you're prosecutor would have an easy case.

Why does Spore Works continue to do business with such a shady company? They are even an authorized reseller! Their domain hijacking has been going on for quite a while and only shows how predatory this company is. They don't even affix a reasonable markup to their prices. It's almost as if every item has the blanket $10 markup!

That was curious to me when I was doing some cross checking. That and their (sporebanks) prices being so high compared to all the other vendors.
hmmmm seems like they really should be legally dealt with. This type of extreme greed is certainly not good for the community.

ralphsterspores.com appears to not be functioning at the moment but it was up when I checked it earlier, humm...

What I dont get is why I have never seen mention of who this individual is, its obviously someone who frequents the shroomery community but there is really no open interaction from this vendor on the forums other than their advertisments and the domain hiijacking. Hard to take someone to task when they are lurking in the shadows.

Who knows if they're even on the boards. Only Spore Works knows for sure.

You make quite a salient point mickey...they probably pulled sporehaven.com, theshroomery.org and ralphsterspores.com out of a hat when they were picking domains to hiijack, purely random. Obviously the likelyhood of them frequenting these boards or being associated with anyone here is near impossible. Who knows...

Yeah, I agree, thats complete BS.

And I think its even worse that the shroomery still has him as a sponser (but its not my choice, of course)... especially for the: theshroomery.com

As for Ralphster, that is even much worse since it definately takes some of you business away (since if I tell a friend "Oh I ordered from Ralphsters, great service, oyu should get your spores there..." then they ddont type the 2 s's, well, theres a good chance he'll go and by from sporebank)... you eally need to do something legally (tho, of course, that'll cost you a few bucks)

He's no longer a sponsor at the shroomery.

i still believe if they are using the domain its illegal. Because im sure they know what they are doing. As long as they do, or it even looks like they do. It is illegal. I would just talk to an attorney =)
