You are really going out of your way to defend him for some reason. A "President and CTO" have plenty of power in decision making of the business including it's assets. Do you seriously think a owner gets involved with every micromanagement decision? Dear lord that would be an ineffective business.

Also, I would have to do some digging of corporate records from a data broker. But I'm pretty sure he is the indirect owner and is simply playing government contracting bonus points for selection games ;) This is 100% normal in the US.

A request for this topic to be pinned to the top of the KiCad section, and with a stronger title. https://www.kicad.org/blog/2021/10/Avoid-links-to-former-kicad-domain/

@Anthocyanina
Can you change the title into something stronger like:  Avoid-the-former-kicad-domain

--- End quote ---

Oh, i haven't visited this section in a while, updated thread name!

thinkfat:
And please mention that former domain name in the title as well.

Doctorandus_P:
I just did a search for the old domain name on this forum and there are over 100 posts with links to that *&^%$#@!.

I'm not sure if a global "search and replace" by someone with rights to do so would be a good way to "fix" this.

As an alternative I can spend an hour or 2 to send a PM to all posters with links to that *&^%$#@! name with a request to change it.

Does anyone have a better idea maybe?

This forum is like vast majority a PHP engine over some SQL

Indeed you probably can not just "replace" unless using SQL

like any other forum there should be a similarity   .. likewise .. this one

--- Code: ---
$someFunc ['db_query']('', '

UPDATE {db_prefix}settings
SET variable = {string:URL}
WHERE variable = {string:deprecated_URL}',
array(
'deprecated_URL' => $deprecated_URL,
'URL' => $URL,
)
);


--- End code ---
