I was reading this article in PC World called “Bank of America Buying Naughty Domain Names.” Apparently, the bank has been buying domains to protect its executives and directors from people who register offending domain names.
From PC World:
The bank has been feverishly registering domains that include the names of its directors and executives combined with “sucks” or “blows,” according to Domain Name Wire. Hundreds of domain names were registered by the bank on December 17 alone, Domain Name Wire said.
Among the names registered by the bank to protect its CEO Brian Moynihan, for example, were BrianMoynihanBlows.com, BrianMoynihanSucks.com, BrianTMoynihanBlows.com, and BrianTMoynihanSucks.com. In addition to the .com domains for those names, .net and .org versions were also registered (though .info seems to have escaped the bank’s notice).
But, this just shows you, that money can’t buy everything.
Despite its domain buying spree, there is one domain that it can’t buy, and it’s probably the most important naughty domain of all: bankofamericasucks.com.
