Ze Thermometer!

Dear Wesleyingers, some asshat from Nameking.com or something bought wesleying.com yesterday. Literally, yesterday. I am so fucking mad.

Have no fear. We have a backup domain name. As in we totes have it. It’s ours. No one can have it. Not even YOU.

But the quarter drive is still going strong!!! And the quarters keep coming in! Special thanks to Jacques Hellid who sent us not one, not two, not three, but eight quarters…but there is apparently no Jacques Hellid at Wesleyan. If you google his name, however, you do find that Jacques Hellid is a Human Necromancer. Thanks Human Necromancer!

Then we got 7 quarters from an ITS envelope, but no names attached. Are we to thank all of ITS? I’m unsure. Thanks ITS!

I was so ridiculously happy this afternoon when I saw these envelopes in my box. Guys, I am a serious nerd.

    Few things,first, the bot that found Wesleying to buy was likely using the frequency of Google search terms/site popularities for “Wesleying”second, cybersquatting laws only apply to trademark holders. i can’t sue anonymous.com because my name is Anonymous.third, fuck the fucking cybersquatter assholes.fourth, it’s really ironic.

    Just so y’all don’t think ITS (as a whole) is incredibly, incredibly cheap, the ITS envelope was not a signifier of a group donation or anything of the sort but rather me simply not paying attention to the envelope I used.

    There are laws on the books to prevent “cybersquatting,” but it’s probably easier just to go with a different url extension.

    I think you can sue them. I’m serious. Unless they’re parodying you. Which they’re not. You can sue them…. maybe. shit.trademarkrkrkrkss.s.s.as.s. ss.s.s.sftw(or you can do something hilarious like gain access to wesleyan’s DNS server cache and just modify wesleying.com so it points to whatever ip address you want. that would be hilarious (and probably illegal, but only if those assholes actually noticed and sued you or filed a complaint with whoever you file a complaint with))-w

    Ugh, there was probably some stupid crawler that saw that “wesleying.com” was written in existence somewhere (that is, on this blog), and then guessed that it might have some sort of use or appeal in the future, and bought it to try to profit. Ew!

    I think I may have some inadvertant responsiblity for the ITS quarters. . . though I don’t know who is directly responsible
