re  www.jonahhunt.com

A few minutes ago, I received noticed that

 - a complaint has been filed with the National Arbitration Forum

- and that I was charged a $50 dispute fee

The National Arbitration Forum's web site at www.adrforum.com states that

"Expert FORUM arbitrators and mediators apply reasonable rules and
substantive law to resolve disputes. The FORUM is the faster, lower
cost and superior alternative to litigation, that ensures parties
receive the same outcomes they would in court."

which explains why Jonah Hunt filed his complaint with the National
Arbitration Forum _after_ failing to prevail in an open court of law
against me (Boulder County District Court case # 2012 CV 4032).
That's sarcasm, for those who don't get it.  Since he can not prevail
in an open court of law, he is hoping that a private arbitrator will
produce more favorable results.

I just logged into my account with domain registrar GoDaddy.com , and
the domain name jonahhunt.com , which I paid for, is no longer listed
in my account.
