I came across an article that is actually 6 years old but I don’t think anyone has ever mentioned it. Just one of the millions of random posts on the Internet.
The post serves as a guide on how to make sure you never get the domain you desire.
Apparently a website named VoidSF.com wanted the domain name Void.com.
So here is how they went about it, from the blog at VoidSF.com:
Dear David Biagini, current owner of VOID.com,
First off, we hate you. Let’s not mince words. You’re sitting on a prime piece of internet real estate, VOID.com, and you are doing NOTHING COOL with it. Nothing. We here at VOID (I’m going to call us VOID PRIME for now, since we live on earth 1, which is awesome. You’re EARTH 2 VOID, which sucks. Earth 2 sucks. Earth 2 is like stuck in the early 1990’s forever. Which is awful.
Do me a favor and go over to your website. Look at that. It’s like a bad spam page from the early the infant of the internet (think Geocities and GIFs). You’re not only defacing the web as we know it, but you’re doing a disservice to anyone who calls themselves a graphic artist. Because that’s what you claim to be. A graphic artist. But look at VOID.com. It looks like you chose your layout at random and possibly decided on your color pallet while on Mexican heroin. Are you a blind person? Because that is the only excuse for your awful taste in everything on your website.
You can read the full article on their blog, apparently the void.com owner also owns voidvoid.com and VoidSF.com would like that too.
