@BOCINC I don't think you can sue someone for using your name, he's not posing to BE Bernie, by your own rules Bernie could sue you since you used his name on THIS website. A name is not a trademark unless its...trademarked . I don't see anything posing to be Bernie, the only likeness they are displaying is the fact that people on the site like him. I don't see a legal issue

Sure, @Planetex19... No one can blame you for trying to help your friend or brother out on this. I guess you were going to get a slice of the flippa sales price too. Sorry to burst your bubble, but this is the real world, and if you think this issue will not resurface again at some point, you are sadly mistaken. On the bright side, there is a person willing to pay you $5000 as of the time of this posting. So, take the money and run while you can. Eventually, those bidders will come to their senses, so hurry up and close it if you can in good conscious.

The website has broken page links such as the "Contact Us" page and the "Members" page.
The site loads too slowly. The site makes no money. Bernie Sanders can very easily SUE for using his name and likeness on the website. This is a disaster waiting to happen and is obviously the work of an amateur who knows little to nothing about the law or website design. Whomever buys this website is just asking for BIG Trouble. If you think a sitting US Senator and a Presidential candidate will sit by and let this continue to happen, you are as silly as the child who is trying to offload this website before he himself gets SUED, or ICANN simply gives the domain name to Bernie Sanders, free of charge!

@BOCINC If all of your boasting is in fact truth. Congrats. Good job. I've had a similar background/experience in life as you so far. I'm 23. Look, you've been a member of Flippa for 4 years and you don't have one deal under your belt. Which is ironic because you're a self claimed "business expert". In regards to the listing, enough is enough, stop trolling the listing. If you're not doing due diligence with an interest to bid on the site you have no reason to be blowin' up the comments. Move along and have a nice day.

Good for you on grabbing that much national attention for such a new site, well done! Good luck with the sale.
As long as you have done your due diligence in exploring the legal channels of this business with an appropriate advisor, one who specializes in Intellectual property: trademarks/copyrights etc… trust in what your advisor has discussed. Further, if you've spoken with Bernie’s handlers and they've not expressed any concern and have in fact expressed support of your venture, stay strong and finish what you've started. The right person will see the value and you’ll have success in selling this venture.

@ BOCINC You’re a funny guy, albeit of little class, but comical all the same. I've been humoured by your little rants, and strongly worded posts warning potential buyers with the finesse of a bull in a china shop. Rarely have I seen someone of actual success blow their own horn as strongly as you have, in such a pointless forum, and with such a strong attempt at convincing people of your “all encompassing worldly knowledge”. You've managed to boast about your schooling, business accomplishments down to the monthly dollar values of your business models, with a special emphasis on your corporate law studies. And all in a mindless attempt to convince people, or yourself, in this forum… regarding this one business for sale. Very amusing. Good thing you don’t use your real name, it would be embarrassing. For a person of 50+ years I’d expect a little more.

Hello, @blakeanderson... You mentioned that I have been on flippa for four years and not closed any sales. Actually, I placed one of our old websites on this forum for sale and got a ton of low ball offers from the usual flippa users. So, I sold the site outside of flippa for TWO HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ($200,000). So, there! Anything else...?

@BOCINC Highly unlikely you sold that site for $200k. Although that'd only be about a 2x multiple which is not absurd. The listing only had a 30 day screenshot. You could of had $1000/month in sales for 11 months then had $10k in March (per your screenshot) then tried to offload it to someone else claiming yearly profits of $120k. You then tried to "side swipe" direct questions by potential buyers. There were several reputable buyers in the comments asking questions but you didn't respond. It sounds more like you had a delusional vision of what your site was worth and you couldn't sucker in buyers so you didn't sell it. Whether or not you sold it elsewhere, I can't verify and who cares. If you did in fact sell it for $200k and are some successful "business expert" you would think you would of used some of that $200k to do some deals in the last 4 years on Flippa.....but you havent....so I doubt just about everything you've claimed.......Once again, stop turning this auction listing into your personal blog....Please, be courteous and move along.

Can you explain why roughly 40% of people don't confirm their email addresses? Are they not receiving your emails? Is the site loading so slowly that the page that confirms the email doesn't load but the registration page does? Or are a lot of the signups actually spam bots? What are you doing to prevent spam? I've had one social network site in the past that was taken over by spammers in China so I know it happens if you don't actively police it.

@sitebuyers it has been a mixture of people not receiving their emails and people not checking their spam if it goes there... I would say roughly 90 percent of our support emails are people asking why they didn't get an email...We have tried fixing it but have not been able to.

For spam I know we have been actively blocking ips that signal as spam, also I we implemented a reporting system.. where users could report users as spam etc. I'm not really the guy to talk to about that, let me see if I can get our security guy to give a better answer

@blakeanderson any information I have given.

That being said, short of some troll saying that it is an issue, I don't see why there is any reason to think there would be.

We are not using his full name, we have been all over the news (we would have received a cease and desist by now). There are TONS of merchandise companies that operate without any issue and they do use his full name.

What happens to this gofundme? https://www.gofundme.com/berniesingles Seems you are collecting donations for the site but won't be needing those donations since you'll be cashing out.

@sitebuyers 5k spread across multiple people for roughly 3 weeks of hard work, is hardly cashing out. This is go to pay our server costs, pay for our theme, flippa costs, email costs, cloudflare, Sendgrid, Etc.

My point is where is that money you are raising going? It hasn't been collected yet and will continue to collect after the site has been sold.

Also I believe this is the plugin you are using. http://www.wpdating.com . Did you pay for it? And if so which paid plan did you purchase at http://www.wpdating.com/pricing/?

We are ending it when the auction ends. That money is going to cover (some of) the costs I mentioned above... Hard costs are about 1k right, we would like to use to the auction money to pay for our time.

Did you buy the extended license or the standard license? I imagine nobody would want to pay for using the site so assume you bought the standard one.

@Ammalgam Digital ocean, Our server droplet costs $160 a month, but we are now using only 15% of the capacity... so more realistically we should be paying probably closer to $40 a month now.. But we have not changed it...

@Ammalgam Also, it is worth noting we are not utilizing our server correctly as far as cache, floating IPs etc.... I have heard the way our server is built is a mess... So I imagine it is even cheaper

Yeah I wish I had met you earlier. I could have turned this around for you in 3 days. Bernie has cash and will be in the race for a while so this is a good deal. A smart person could turn this whole thing around in one week. You're not caching properly or using a CDN. Easy stuff to fix.
