racklerr is where you express what you “believe to be true” without the fear of being blocked, doxed, banned, throttled, or deplatformed. “Jailing” your voice cannot happen because you own your Channel.
A Gracklerr Channel owner receives a Bill of Sale and a Deed (similar to a Deed to a home). You own your Gracklerr Channel and are free to use it in any lawful manner.
Gracklerr is not funded by Big Tech, Venture Capitalists, Fortune 500 companies, or any major organization.
Funding from such sources is avoided because of the other Golden Rule: “He who has the gold, rules.”
To eliminate potential corrosive compromises, Gracklerr generates revenue by selling “Channels”. At Gracklerr there are two types of Channels, regular and nonregular.
Nonregular Channels are owned by celebrities, sports figures, politicians, billionaires, etc. All corporate and organizational Channels are also classified as nonregular.
Regular Channels are those owned by the rest of us.
During our introductory period, Regular Channels are available at a substantial discount at the Gracklerr Shop.
Additionally, anyone purchasing their own Channel during the limited, introductory period will never be assessed our normal annual renewal fee. Over time that will add up to hundreds of dollars in savings.
Any Channel, whether regular or nonregular can be Optioned and held until the person for whom the Channel is named purchases the Channel from the Option Holder.
Channel Options are available here.
This widely disbursed source of revenue from Channel and Channel Option Sales ensures no one individual or group can apply undue pressure over Gracklerr’s content or policies.
Of course, nonregular Channels are more likely to be Optioned than regular Channels because a “speculator” thinks, “Hey, at some point ‘Celebrity Renowned’ is going to want to own her Celebrity Renowned Channel.”
“So I’ll purchase an Option on the Celebrity Renowned channel now for $X and transfer it to Celebrity Renowned later, at $X+.”
These Channel Option Holders create a kind of “market” or “exchange” for, mostly, nonregular Channels.
The same speculative logic applies to any Channel named for any individual whose opinions have significant numbers of both those who agree and those who disagree. These are so-called controversial figures.
That is in keeping with the inspiration for Gracklerr’s structure, i.e the “Opinion” versus “Opposite Opinion” model borrowed from print-journalism. There was a time in the past when openness to opposing points of view in opinion journalism was the norm.
Gracklerr’s structure replicates that in the digital world.

Gracklerr Channel Options are akin to what happened when the world wide web first blossomed. Forward thinkers bought domain names they speculated would one day become popular. These speculators profited when buyers came calling.
For example, McDonald’s wrote a $3,500 check for their domain. The original owner (Joshua Quittner), probably paid ten or twenty dollars for www.mcdonalds.com.
Symbolics.com (the very first domain name) was registered in 1985. Ten years later, Wired reported that just a third of Fortune 500 companies had registered the obvious versions of their names.
Generally, “nonregulars” are not “innovators” or “first adopters”. They usually take a “wait-and-see” approach. And that works for them because they can afford to pay a premium for being cautious, for holding back.
Here are a few domain sales speculators sold at handsome profits: Business.com – $345 million, LasVegas.com – $90 million, CarInsurance – $49.7 million, VacationRentals.com – $35 Million, PrivateJet.com – $30.1 Million.
As of this date, the highest price on record for a domain was $827 million for cars.com.
Any individual can purchase a regular Channel outright at the Gracklerr Shop.
Nonregular individuals or organizations purchase Channels at the Nonregular Channels Shop.
Of course, nonregular Channel buyers must be the individual or organization for whom the Channel is named.
That is, the individual or organization for whom the Channel is named.
For example, only Joe Biden or a Joe Biden designated entity can own the Joe Biden Channel.
However, before the purchase of the Joe Biden Channel is consummated, either by Joe Biden or a Joe Biden designated entity, anyone can “Option” the Joe Biden Channel.
There is a process for authenticating the rightful claimant to a Channel. There are financial assessments levied against those who violate Gracklerr’s Channel sales terms and conditions.
All Optioned Channels participate in an ongoing Channel Option Auction until the Channel is purchased by the individual or entity for whom the Channel is named, i.e. the rightful Channel claimant.
The price at which the current Channel Option holder is willing to transfer the Option to another Option holder or sell the Channel outright to the rightful Channel claimant is set by the then-current Channel Option holder.
Option terms also stipulate the then-current Option holder must sell outright the Channel to the person or entity for whom the Channel is named under the following terms and conditions:
At any time, the individual or organization for whom the Channel is named can purchase the Channel outright by either paying the “Buy It Now” price of the Channel or by paying a three (3%) percent premium over the highest bid price of the Channel Option Auction, whichever is lesser.
To cover the costs of Gracklerr’s ongoing operations, Gracklerr receives the proceeds from all initial Channel and Option sales. Thereafter, Gracklerr receives three (3%) percent of all transaction amounts.
