    I think it is being taken / handed over as part of a lawsuit. Don’t know the details but that sucks for the owner and members of the site.

    Weird drama playing out

    Apparently the owner of shaggy had a business deal go south and he was sued. Shaggy guy lost the suit (which involved website revenues, maybe other things, idk) and had to forfeit the site over to the guy who won* the suit and he is taking their servers sometime Monday - details on this shag thread

    More of the weird: the OU site was owned (at least partly I guess) by the shaggy owner, so that site is also being taken over, possibly shut down tomorrow as well - thread on Land Thieves site

    You know ou sucks when they let a Longhorn's troubles bring down their site

    * Who is this guy that sued shaggy and took over these two websites?
    Kevin Morgan

    One thing we know about Morgan is that he is a graduate of....

    Wait for it....

    West Texas A&M

    I guess the shaggy folks are going to bail out because they don't want to support their new site owner, so they will probably bring up a new site pretty soon. Same for the sooners? Who knows

    so aggy, but could not even get to be a REAL much fail with that one.

    Have no idea what the Eskimo Hut is but I know I won't ever be going to one if I did know what it was...

    Someone from West Texas State that is not a rassler? I only know of three athletes out of West Texas State that did not become rasslers:

    Pistol Pete Pedro - poster boy for SpotBilt Shoes, and leading rusher in college football a couple of years in a row. Today, his endorsement of SpotBilt would be an NCAA violation.

    Duane Thomas

    Mercury Morris

    Ironically, Thomas and Morris came out of the same high school.

    Condolences to "Stinky II", but you ain't famous YET.

    I hope they do get a new home very soon. It'll keep the juvenile morons off of here.

    I think Kevin Morgan may have kicked a sleeping dragon here. Shaggy had thousands of members all of whom now have an irreparable, negative, customer perception of Eskimo Hut. It's the clear choice of who to take this out on. Run it through whatever customer complaint model you want: an angry customer will tell 'x' number of people, cost the business 'x' number of people... consider social media and how rabid some of the posters were... there will be damage.

    p.s. - Shaggy and a 6th street bar bathroom at closing time have a lot in common right now. Don't touch anything... in fact.. don't even go. :facepalm:

    Jury found the dude diverted money.

    FUPA jokes can't help you in the real world.

    If the Shaggy website was “awarded” to the plaintiff as part of the judgment but the users bail out to a new site, then it immediately becomes a worthless asset. The value was bound up in traffic and clicks for advertisers. No users, no revenue. Same for the Land Thieves site. I can't imagine that the domain names would fetch much at this point either.

    Plus, as @El Sapo pointed out, the Eskimo Hut brand just got a PR black eye with a few folks.

    The only upside I can see is satisfying a personal grudge because this is all true.

    I gotta hand it to him, he stuck to his guns and went down swinging :coolnana:

    Apparently, Eskimo Hut (how do they get away with this name anyway?) is getting pounded in Yelp.
