  •  It's called "squatting". (0+ / 0-)

    republicansforobama.com is owned by an internet "advertising" company which is capitalizing on republicansforobama.org. Basically, they are trying to capitalize on people mistakenly visiting .com instead of the .org. (As would have been obvious to the diarist if they'd bothered to ask google for directions.

    •  Wow. The snark. I already apologized below. (0+ / 0-)

      But thanks for giving us information that you don't source, in the box. Appreciate it.

      You related to Nick Burns the Computer Guy, perchance?

    •  Also, if it had immediately gone to (0+ / 0-)

      the advertising site, I would have realized, I'm sure, that I got the wrong domain name. What was confusing was, it initially flashed the real Repubs for Obama site and then switched. That made me think "hacked."

      Oh, and I wanted it to help me write letters for the campaign -- because I'm actually helping with the campaign rather than getting all snarky with people who don't use Google perfectly.

      But the main thing is, if you'd bothered to read two posts below, I'd already apologized. Bad form, my bro.
