theodp writes: Haters of Bank of America and CEO Brian Moynihan now have 439 fewer ways to express their disdain for the bank. In recent days, at least 439 domain names that are critical of BofA’s top officials were taken off the market. The registrations of the domain names, which include imaginative swipes at the bank's CEO, such as BrianMoynihanBlows.com and BrianTMoynihanSucks.net, will stop BofA-haters from slamming the bank's top execs and directors with a couple of very specific pejoratives. Companies have made it a practice to scoop up negative web addresses that might be used by disgruntled customers, but this domain name buy is unusual in that it focuses on BofA's directors and corporate officers rather than the corporate brand. In other BofA news, a cloud of suspense surrounds Bank of America and WikiLeaks amidst speculation that BofA may be the next target of Julian Assange.
