[Rant]

So after a friend of mine sent me a few cartoons by Wiley from his Non Sequitur strip, I wanted to find the rest of the series.

Instead of typing "http://www.non-sequitur.com", I typed in "http://www.nonsequitur.com" and I got this:



Yes, it happens all the time. There are millions upon millions of websites out there, designed to look almost like the one you want, just waiting for your fat fingers to make a mistake, and serve up a worthless page of links and ads, which somehow they hope they can monetize. Cybersquatters register domain names by the hundreds, set up advertising pages, watch which ones get the most hits and clicks, and get refunds for the non-productive ones within the 5-day period allotted by ICANN.

And it really frosts my chops.

Listen, you slimy hqizmongers: What you're doing is deceitful and underhanded. You're wasting time, wasting bandwidth, wasting productivity and ripping people off. You're jugging up the internet with noise, and nobody gives a rat's south-40 about you or your schemes. Encountering your rubbish is like taking a walk in a green, sun-drenched field of an alpine valley, only to step in a cowpie.

Kthxdie, onioburus.
