Cybersquat, My Ass
   by robin

Would you pay $3,000 (USD) for a domain name? PFFT! I sure as hell wouldn't. That's what some sons of bitches want to sell for. The damn thing isn't even used for anything: no web site, no mail server, not even a nameserver. They bought the stupid domain with the sole fucking intention of making a buck out of it. This stinks. The Internet isn't what it used to be.

Don't get me wrong. I don't care all that much about dot-COMs in general and we have no plan whatsoever to make pfft.NET commercial. I just think it's pretty damn anal retentive to register a domain you don't even want to use.

Mr. Foster, you can suck my balls and shove that PFFT where the sun don't shine.
