Untrusted SSL Certificate; Blue Host hosting


It has been brought to our attention by several consumers that are attempting to purchase products and services at the NAAS.ORG website that they are encountering a technical issue with respect to NAAS Subscriptions. An error message claiming "www.naas.org uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self signed."

Please note that the SSL certificate is valid. The issue is a miscommunication between the RSA Key, and SSL certificate. Currently, the tool sused by BlueHost to resolve the issue is not working. The administrators of this company have pledged to resolve this issue within a matter of a few hours.

Thank you for your patience. The company responsible for fixing this issue, and the company responsible for mainataining the reliabilty of its servers and equipment, is BlueHost. We have communicated our concerns to the company, and hope that the matter will be addressed without further inconvenience to the many persons who rely upon NAAS products and services.

CONSUMERS: BEWARE: SEDO.COM, LLC

**CONSUMERS: BEWARE OF DOMAIN NAMES SOLD OR AUCTIONED BY SEDO.COM, LLC**
This is a German-based company that markets and sells domain names that some U.S. companies allege infringe upon their intellectual trademarks.
CYBER-SQUATTING is a crime.

The Anti-Cybersquatting Piracy Act (ACPA) Lanham Act S. 43(d), 15 U.S.C.
S.1125(d) prohibits the sort of conduct complained of against SEDO.COM.
The following domain names being offered by SEDO.com are without
the approval of the trademark owner. These domain names have not been authorized by the trademark owner, and, in our opinion, clearly infringe upon the elasvegas trademark: elasvegas.com,elasvegas.co.uk,­­elasvegas.biz.

When presented an opportunity to cure this complaint, SEDO.COM at first denied ownership of the domain names, and instructed NAAS Agents to contact the person(s) who they claimed actually owned the domain names. SEDO.COM claimed or pretended that it would at first cooperate. As the NAAS evidence accumulated, SEDO.COM essentially admitted or failed to produce evidence that a legitimate third-party person had actually registered the domain names(s).

In responding to a Better Business Bureau complaint, SEDO.COM failed to provide the name(s) of the claimed domain name registrants, and instead produced a rambling letter defending its use of the disputed domain names.

Although the SEDO.COM rebuttal letter was not signed by a SEDO.COM employeee, and even though no name of an actual SEDO.COM employee appeared on the SEDO.COM rebuttal letter, and although SEDO.COM did not reference a single law that substantiated its use of the disputed domain names, the evasive letter was apparently good enough for the Boston chapter of the Better Business Bureau. Thus, it is not unreasonable to speculate or assume that the 'A+'accrediation seal that was sold or provided to SEDO.COM by the BBB is simply a fraud on the public by the BBB.

Based upon the foregoing and other evidence, an NAAS-NEWS Media Report rates SEDO.COM with an 'F' grade. However, the Boston chapter of the Better Business Bureau rates this same company with an 'A+'. The fact is that suspicious BBB Accredited Seals of Approval are illegitimate and do not accurately reflect the integrity of a company, or the quality of its products or services.

An NAAS investigation into numerous companies that claim accreditation BBB 'A+' ratings appear to suggest that these companies are the most distrustful, deceitful, high-priced, and complaint-prone.

The Boston chapter of the Better Business Bureau was provided a 14-day ultimatum to revoke the false, deceptive, and misleading 'A+' Seal of approval provided SEDO.COM, LLC, and to cease and desist false references that SEDO.COM has obtained a trademark for its logo seal when in fact NAAS Agents have filed documentation suspending the trademark application of SEDO.COM.

American consumers apparently have forgotten the atrocities of World War II, and the type of deceit used by the Germans against U.S. military personnel, and American citizens. German-based companies are typically deceitful. Americans who accept paychecks from such companies should be viewed with skepticism. Some critics even argue that such Americans are traitors who are willing to ignore the millions of murders, abuses, atrocities, and horrors inflicted upon Americans in World War I, and WWIII by Germans. Such abuses are now taking place on the Internet through the deliberate disrespect of the American consumer and illegal trafficking of domain names that infringe upon the rights of U.S. companies.

Americans should *AVOID* purchasing domain names and using web hosting companies from foreign-based companies since it is typical for these foreign companies to disrespect U.S. laws or to fabricate excuses why U.S. laws do not apply to them.

Do yourself a favor, and your grand children a favor:
**DO NOT MAKE GERMAN CITIZENS RICH AT THE EXPENSE OF YOUR AMERICANS RIGHTS, AND THE ABILITY OF AMERICAN CHILDREN TO MARKET THEIR CREATIONS AND INVENTIONS.**

Russian Businessman tied to Accreditation Scams Sponsored by State of Idaho


Jailed oil tycoon and Russian businessman Mikhail Khodorkovsky was sentenced to several years in prison by Russian authorities. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin was a force behind the prosecution of this corrupt businessman. Yet, U.S. officials condemned the sentence as unjust.

It is no secret that underlings tied to Mikhail Khodorkovsky have been a leading financier and third-party promoter of accreditation scams linked to the education departments of Idaho, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and Montana.

Although numerous complaints by parents and students have been lodged against the business partner of Idaho, Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc. (a/k/a The Northwest Accreditation Commission), the State of Idaho has ignored the complaints just as it has ignored legitimate complaints about prisoner abuse, prisonor degradation, and inhumane treatment of those in the Idaho penal system.

The abuse and corruption in Idaho is so rampant that the liberal ACLU even filed a lawsit against Idaho institutions linked to the incidents.

Meanwhile, The Northwest Accreditation Commission was engaging in acts directly approved by Idaho government officials, and covertly sponsored by persons with links to Mikhail Khodorkovsky ; these acts included, but were not limited to, accreditation schemes by trademark infringement; accreditation schemes designed to legitimize Russian, and Arabic recruitment targets.

These targets in turn were directed to destabilize U.S. military divisions. The U.S. and Europe condemned the sentence but Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has the high moral road. Can anyone name a single U.S. government agency or education department that has sought the prosecution of David Steadman, Norene Rice, Tom Luna, Chuck Fannin, Vickki Reynolds, or Corinne Roberts??

Apparently, mail fraud, and trademark infringement do not apply to protected
U.S. citizens with business ties to certain state education departments. We all know that if the typical poor blue-collar citizen or racial minority were profitting off the the trademarks of Apple, Microsoft, or any U.S. FORTUNE 500 company, then that person would be prosecuted.

Even the U.S. Trademark Trial & Appeal Board, under ANDREW BAXLEY has hopped on board the wagon to legitimize the fraudulent schemes connected to the State of Idaho via Northwest Association of
Accredited Schools, Inc. After a DEFAULT JUDGEMENT was issued, ANDREW BAXLEY reversed course when he allegedly received a phone call, signal, or other communicative directive from a government employee connected to the State of Idaho or Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc. This abrupt attempt to conceal a DEFAULT JUDGEMENT damaging to the integrity of Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc. is one of the most potent examples of that Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc., and the State Education Department of Idaho are far more corrupt than many are willing to concede.

In the U.S.A., oftentimes the rich, popular, and/or well-connected, (for example, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Eliot Spitzer, David Steadman, Craig Titus, Amanda Knox, and numerous others) are not thoroughly prosecuted for crimes they committed. What evidence do U.S. Postal Inspectors need? David Steadman, and his corrupt employees signed a series of statements under penalty of perjury, filed those statements before a federal agency, that he was profitting off of the NAAS trademark and using the mail system of the U.S. Postal service to carry out his crimes. Yet, the State Education Departments still embrace, sponsor, promote, and endorse Northwest Association of
Accredited Schools, Inc?

Who is the bigger criminal, a moral and brave Prime Minister Vladimir Putin
(who is not afraid or intimidated by the likes of DAVID STEADMAN) or corrupt
home-grown U.S. citizens who embrace Northwest Association of Accredited
Schools, Inc?

A senseless Marina Khodorkovskaya said the judge had "put his title of judge
in shame." Ok, one can draw the same conclusion about Interlocutory
Attorney/ANDREW BAXLEY of the U.S. Trademark Trial & Appeal Board who is willing to bend, stretch, and re-bend any TTAB rule to legitimize the trademark application of Northwest Association of Accredited Schools, Inc even *AFTER* a DEFAULT JUDGEMENT was entered, AND AFTER more than 90 days when defendant made no appearance in the matter.

Russian businessman Mikhail Khodorkovsky was properly convicted, and attempts
to question his sentence by planted U.S. moles should be ignored.
