It turns out that MacSlash.com was no more "hijacked
" than succaland.com was "stolen
" (despite what it says in the MetaFilter sideblog). Like k10k.com
, they let their domain expire and it was snapped up. Leslie Harpold
says that hoopla.com and smug.com hadn't expired, and Verisign
has not contradicted her, but true domain hijackings don't seem all that common, do they?
