I could support this man if he had not started out by killing a cops daughter and fiance.
Killing of the innocent should be avoided when possible.
And they should NEVER the targets.

He fucked up right there in my book.

Hope he takes out a couple of those murdering Fullerton PD cops before he gets killed or get put away forever though.

The domain is being used exclusively for activities relating to Ron Paul the congressman from Texas. This is exactly the definition of cybersquatting.

Cybersquatting is not what you think it is.

From liked article.
is registering, trafficking in, or using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. The cybersquatter then offers to sell the domain to the person or company who owns a trademark contained within the name at an inflated price.

I do not see bad faith here. They created the site to help Ron Paul get elected. (Fail 1)
They have a huge mailing list of people interested in hearing from Ron Paul. This list has value the asking price is probably not far from fair. (Fail 2)

Ron Paul should stop being a bitch and work a deal with these people.
Ron Paul runs to have something that people created to benefit him, that has inherent value that came from their work to be taken from them by an international organization that he believes is bad and should go away.
Fuck Ron Paul.

Steam gives me something in compensation.
Steam games are cheaper.
Steam accounts can be used on multiple systems. I have Steam at work for when I want to screw around.
I can update my computers for the next ten years and keep the Steam games the whole time.
Soon I will be able to abandon Windows for Linux and still play my Steam games.

What will Sony or Microsoft give me for no right to resell?
