I was on who.is to make sure that nobody could view your web host because you keep it a secret. At first it said eNom, I clicked around a few other tabs, saw you had a who-is guard in place, went back to the first tab, and saw your real host!

Our web host isn't a secret, it's gandi.net. I just didn't want to post it on Scratch because they have a word that is less than appropriate for Scratch in their motto. On our former domain registrar (Namecheap.com), we did have WhoIsGuard since they required me to put my full name and address in the domain information. However, Gandi does not display my name or address in the WhoIs information, so we did not feel any need to enable WhoIsGuard or similar.

This website is linked to from Scratch and should be profanity-free (which includes posting links to websites with such language).

But, do what you want, it's not my website.

Also, I think you do have who is guard, because who.is claims you live in France, which I know perfectly well is not true.

Gandi.net is a very reputable web host, and although their motto may have a bad word in it, that is their business strategy, and I would rather link to a reliable web host than some of the ones I have used in the past that use questionable business practices. Also, any user on Scratch that is capable of operating WhoIs would probably not be offended by seeing inappropriate words on a website. There are plenty of websites linked to from Scratch (Youtube for example) that have inappropriate words on them but the Scratch Team does not ban.

That is because Gandi is based in France, and it just auto-populates the information with theirs since I chose not to provide mine.

Thank you for stating that, you actually have convinced me.

Here's another joke I wrote:

Does that mean that Gandi is run by Jacob G. who works at FutureSight Technologies?
