still down!

UPDATE 6/4/2007: AuctionCities has been up and operational for approximately a month, but a myriad of database and server errors have precluded anybody from listing there. It looks like the Cold Fusion license has expired, and newer versions of software on the server may be incompatible with the AuctionCities software. As of today, the site is again unavailable.

AuctionCities (formerly Bidway and Bidbay) has been down since January,
and at the beginning of April, promises from ownership to get it back
online were appearing.

April 8th was the first promised date. Around that time, the site appeared
to be moved to a new server, because errors started showing via Cold
Fusion, PHP, and MySQL due to the different versions of the software on
the servers.

Then a pop-up box began appearing promising that April 15th would
be the day that the site would be back online. At this point, the main
home page would display, but no links worked. Some pages even showed the
native Cold Fusion coded pages, including interesting tidbits like IP
numbers to ban from browsing AuctionCities, George Tannous’ home IP for
instance, and userid’s that were designated as "Administrators"

As of this writing (April 16th), the dreaded "Server Cannot Be Found"
error has been appearing when the site is accessed. Does this mean they
gave up trying to relaunch the site, are they moving servers again?

UPDATE: A new pop up message warns users that the site will now be up on April 22nd, but the chat rooms are available for anybody wanting to chat.

I don’t know how those auctions are going to work that have been running since the site went down in January.

Tulip Tools Starts Its Own Hate Site

No longer committed just to scamming people with the lie that isn't a reseller, and caught between a rock and a hard place with Passion / BellisimaJ / Nicole Jaworski as a TT representative (or is she? ), BargainBloodHound and Regic (Todd Switzer and his wife) and/or Passion (Nicole Jaworski) have decided to start a website called "Cyber Stalking Info", and lists 8 individuals. Again, it seems the representatives must have just got dial up, because this type of action was popular in the mid 90's. As soon as people see the facts, they'll ignore anything and everything that tuliptools and any of its "subsidiaries" has to "sell".

No proof of course is offered. You will find the facts here on and its forums Ask them for their facts and proof, but don't wait too long for the answers.

Of course, the owners of this "serious" web site don't really want you to know who owns the web domain name, so they keep it hidden. Bwaahhwbahha. It is more than a coincidence that both and, Passion's little used blog, both use the same design faux pas of highlighting text in paragraphs, but not making them clickable.

I mean, how do you "prove" a person is a cyberstalker by posting a person's Amazon and/or eBay account name? WTF? Obviously, the idea of the site is to damage a person's Amazon or eBay business by posting this information on an anti-stalking site, and hope and pray it gets into the search engines.

Seriously, Todd,  Regina, Nicole, you need to read more stories here about Gegy and Mootropolis, and come up with something original.
