Re: NYTimes: Purloined Domain Name Is an Unsolved Mystery

good suggestions, and for those who use Firefox for web browsing, check out this extension for auto-use of BugMeNot:

Off-topic comment: what's rude is breaking the flow of a discussion (note I re-arranged your text so that the flow makes sense, eve if it doesn't meet your ideal). If someone top-posts, then you should follow up in-kind. Going back and forth from one to the other makes for a very difficult read. I personally prefer top-posting - when viewing emails from my Treo, for example, the text on top shows up first and does not require me to scroll down - and if I've already read the original, why would I want to re-read it when viewing the reply anyway?

dont want to let marketers have their information and its rude to send links
that dont work anonymously.
