Poll question: I captured a domain name that ridicules a Democratic candidate. Now what?
So, someone created a domain name that makes fun of one of our local democratic candidates.

I back-ordered the domain to "capture" it once it expired.

I own the site with an anonymous listing,, so nobody has to know that I own. it. Anonymity gives me a certain amount of leeway.

I figured I had better take it before someone opposed to him took it.

OK, now what do I do with it?

2. I voted for editorial statements
Every site out there for your candidate adds value to the campaign itself without burdening staff with new work. It's a great way to contribute. You were very clever to snatch the domain.

3. Forward it
to a screen that says, "A childish Republican created this domain name to make fun of a good, honest, decent public servant. Do you want people like that running your government?
