'Bore Me Not'

I cancelled zpreddit.com (pron: ‘spread it’) and bought boremenot.com. I did this because I came to know that several friends of mine haven’t heard of Reddit. So I started hunting for names that match the purpose better. As usual, I tried about a hundred and a few were available too. Thankfully I didn’t decide on any of the local minima like purplehot.com. When boremenot.com “occurred” to me, I totally knew that thats the best fit.

I stupidly cancelled zpreddit.com, thinking that Yahoo will prorate and refund. That moneys gone down the drain :-( They said that they won’t refund AFTER I cancelled. Had I known, I would have kept it for some more time and redirected the traffic to boremenot.com. In fact, before I cancelled, I did wonder if they will refuse to refund. Then I decided that the best way to find out would be to just do it. Hmm… you get what you ask for.

boremenot.com isn’t active yet. When it becomes active, it will definitely be something to check out. In the mean time, check out: dailyben.com/bmn, which is where boremenot.com is going to point to.

Update : Aug 4, 2017

I let boremenot.com, dailyben.com, and zpreddit.com expire a lot time ago. Looks like some squatters have grabbed them.

dei i think if there is a frame or ticker that displays the list in reddit it would be much better. What is the value proposition da? I mean the business behind the site. Or is it your stepping stone?

not a business da. just a simple tool that i thought people might find useful. evidence so far proves otherwise :-)
