If you've been following the story on MSNBC about how Lisa Murkowski's campaign botched the spelling of her website URL in an ad, spelling it "lisamurkwski.com" instead, then you'll understand what this is about.

Someone else grabbed the URL, lisamurkwski.com and created a website ridiculing her, but that site appears to favor Mark Levin, the Republican candidate, or at least that's what Rachel Maddow said this evening.

So, for what it's worth, I now own http://www.murkwski.com / and am redirecting it to http://www.scottmcadams.org/

"Someone else grabbed the URL, lisamurkwski.com and created a website ridiculing her"

Could this qualify as bullying?

(Be careful...people are starting to prosecute for cybersquatting. Consider the following...)

Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act

Legal options for the "victim" is spotty at best...but in weighing the possibilities. How important is it to you, really?

:hippie:

4. I'm wondering the same thing,
and isn't Towlie the person who's encouraging the Democratic candidate to remove himself from the Florida Senate race?

Dubious...
