This is written in a very slanted and somewhat alarmist manner, although
the chronology is (mostly) correct. There’s a heavy reliance on domainers
and their (direct and indirect) handiwork, which contributes to the
overheated tone and rush to judgment imbued in this piece.

This is useful as a timeline.  I’d advise adding other sources and a
critical eye to understand the facts.

The sale raises some serious questions and concerns, and the optics suck
from many if not most perspectives.  But we need to know more before
arriving at our conclusions.
