      That is funny. Although I will say that some people have way too much spare time on their hands.

    2. Bill Brandt Says:

      Years ago – in the 90s – I purchased a domain name for our company – despite a lot of trying sales were minimal and I let it laps – 5-7 years later.

      A porn company bought it and it occurred to me I have to redo all my business cards.

      Thankfully an Ohio radio station eventually got it.

    3. Dave Homes Says:

      Haha. I think that’s awesome. I wonder if they made any money from Guy for taking it down.

      I remember Chicago Boyz porn. That’s how I got here…

      A local restaurant didn’t buy its obvious domain name either, which is now occupied by a completely generic “Lorem ipsum…” set of pages for a fill-in-the-black restaurant. The actual restaurant has a lousy web page under a similar name.

    5. PenGun Says:

      That would almost be enough evidence to get ICANN to give you the domain name. People sue for names all the time.
