The spectre of self-linking once again rears its ugly head. Allow me to present Exhibit A - "The clueless reviews the Mac Mini", submitted on MacSlash by StormBear. If it may please the court, here also is Exhibit B - "The clueless reviews the Mac Mini", submitted in the blue by user #3411, alias StormBear. Ladies and gentlemen, the prosecution rests.
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 and poetrysoc.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?
