Mike Mann is the founder of Buy Domains, Domain Market, and a number of other Internet companies such as SEO.com and Phone.com (three of his companies made the 2012 Inc 500 list). He also happens to be a polarizing individual, and some people have strong opinions of him.
If you don’t follow his Facebook account, you can see evidence of this by the number of Fake Mike Mann and/or Mike Mann parody Twitter accounts that have been created. Here are just a few of them that I found this morning:
Don’t hate the player, hate the domain. If you say mean things to me, I will write mean things about you on crime.org! I rule.

hey douche me! — mikemann (@mikemannscapes) February 20, 2013
And the award for creative Twitter account name goes to:
@fakemikemann PM me asap. — Mike Manngina (@MikeManngina) February 22, 2013
Not sure if this one is a fake account, but it seems that all of the tweets so far have something to do with him:
@mikemannscapes how come knowone has douched me yet?

In case you are wondering, Mike Mann’s real Twitter account can be found @MikeMannDotCom. It’s pretty amusing that people have enough time on their hands to create fake Mike Mann Twitter accounts.
Sounds as though Mike needs to get a verified account on Twitter.
Looks like someone has a man crush, idiotic stuff, why don’t you get back to the real facts, and stories of domaining, then following this attention seeker, that employs losers to spam domainers, then fires them for being losers, hmmm
I wish you would start a blog.
DomainNegativity.com is probably available to hand register. You can pick apart every little thing you see in the world of domain investing instead of posting your negative comments here.
Sir Elliot Silver-
Please ignore people like Ron who is behind some stinky diapers hiding their identities.
Speaking about diapers, do you use cloth diapers?
When you conduct yourself in a certain abrasive way, you’re going make more enemies than friends, you’re going to turn off potential listeners.
It’s a decision we all must make.
Most people who don’t posses the life skills to conduct themselves in a socially appropriate fashion will often develop a messianic complex, believing they’re hated for ‘telling it like it is’ rather than disliked for how they behave and present themselves.
It’s really easy to right the ship and become a liked person. Just be nice and take the chip off your shoulder.
I’ve got no bone to pick with Mike, but I will say that I had a higher opinion of his character before I followed him on Twitter. I will also say that I still admire his business acumen.
This seems to be a veiled attack on Mike, who has been trolled into making some unfortunate emotional remarks of late. Whats the real basis of this posT??

I cringe every time I see a comment from you, whether it’s on my blog or elsewhere.
This was not any type of attack on Mike. I’ve done business with Mike and respect him quite a bit. In fact, right after posting this, I shared it on his Facebook wall and he and his wife both “liked” it.
If Mike felt like this was an attack, I am sure he would have posted here and told me as much or sent me an email. Mike is not shy about sharing his opinion with me or anyone else for that matter.
Hi Elliot. I heard that there’s a Rick Schwartz parody twitter account and maybe even a Jeff Schneider one too (although that might be too easy)

I have an agenda and am not bashfull about it. Thanks for asking :
The Online Business expansion is being held hostage by SEO Manipulated Search Engine Marketing.
Picture an infinite laned highway with only one entrance ramp?
This in effect is the only option SEO Manipulated Search Engine Marketing supplies to businesses begging to be found in cyberspace.
Full Optimal Internet Expansion can never be achieved through SEO Manipulated Search Engine Marketing.More and more web businesses will be stranded and isolated in cyberspace, never to be found because of the Search Engines Foundationally and Fundamentally Flawed Achilles Heal, called (Market Saturation Obsolescence)
The SEO Manipulated Search Platform by its very design is the big problem. Any Business Locator system that has to be manipulated to find your business is not a direct and honest solution.
Google knows what ( Market Saturation Obsolescence) means, by being victim to it. Why do you think they are going to type-ins themselves. Get ready to hear about this very crippling subject,more and more over the years to come.
(Market Saturation Obsolescense) is caused by the massive amount of illegitimate SEO manipulated data that is dumped into the Search Engine Experience.It literally bastardizes information supplied to people searching for your business through a Search Engine. End-Users who trust being found In cyberspace through the Search Engine Centric Marketing Model, suffer the consequnences.
What many business owners are not told by their SEO manipulator friends, is this key boondoggle of SEO Manipulated Marketing , and it is this !
Your businesses most dreaded competitors are often on the same Search Engine page as your companies are and are just one Click away from you as a choice.
Now come on now, do you think this is Smart Marketing?
It may be smart for SEO manipulators ! But a very stupid choice for the business owner, We think.
This phenomonon can be TOTALLY, avoided by using Pure Play Direct Navigation .COM Generics,ONLY.
Seriously, the Smart Marketers are not swallowing the SEO Manipulated Search Engine Kool-Aid here.
For all these reasons, we are especially concerned with the whole foundational Dysfunction of ALL Search engines inability to efficiently locate Businesses legitimately. SEO Manipulators are just a part of this highly inefficient system employed by Search engines in locating businesses with their totally dysfunctional and by the way obsolesced Marketing Function. The SMART money will be going around them more and more.Count on it !
OCCAMS RAZOR !
