i just found out about sex dot com
this has to be the most expensive fucking domain to ever exist, it's been reported to generate up to $500k per month in ad clicks, it was once sold for $13 MILLION dollars, and it was once stolen by a guy impersonating the real owner, who was eventually ordered to pay $65 million in losses and damages
there must be millions of horny teenagers just typing "sex.com" into their browser every day or something, what the fuck
@lynnesbian i remember this story
its a fun one
the guy who stole it still sends passive aggressive shit to the owner
@lynnesbian and sometimes aggressive aggressive shit
@lynnesbian like actually if i remember right they have daily harassment calls
"hello, you're speaking to the proud owner of sex dot com, how can i--"
"listen here you piece of shit. give me sex dot com NOW or i'll fucking KILL YOU. you don't understand the power you have"
every single day forever
@lynnesbian thats pretty much it
and its been going on for years
guy had to go into hiding after the lawsuit and is still out there somewhere but still takes the time to call the owner to be all mad about it
altho i think i remember mention of the calls getting less aggressive over time but it still happens
@moonybun why doesn't he just settle for sex.net or something
@lynnesbian i think hes more upset about being forced into hiding after being found out his shit loads of money came from fraud
*immediately browses to food.com*
sleep.com redirects to some mattress company.
@lynnesbian "sex.com" seems like something you'd see a character in a sitcom type instead of a real place someone would go to looking for pornography
@lynnesbian ah the heady days of three letter .coms, I can't remember if I ever typed in sex.com but I definitely checked a lot of three letter words when I first heard they were starting to run out
