Criminal break-in and intimidation to get a domain: Court documents say:

"In June of 2017, Adams enlisted the help of his cousin, Sherman Hopkins Jr. to force the transfer. Hopkins drove to the house, grabbed the victim by the arm, and showed him a demand letter containing instructions on transferring the domain, placing a gun against the victimís head."

While old news, still very disturbing!

Nut cases abound. Or worse, folks with a skewed sense of doing business at the point of a gun. Oh, that's just as nutty!
