A couple of days ago, on the aftermath of the massacre in Norway – where almost 100 people were killed and as many were wounded – I posted a tweet to test the scruples of domainers.
NorwayKiller.com is available to register, if you feel so inclined #domains #norway #oslo
It seems that there are plenty of domainers that would stoop to new lows, as to actually register such a domain name. Sure enough, the domain NorwayKiller.com was registered later that day, according to DomainTools.
Nowadays, every major piece of news is a direct invitation to register the .com of the phrase or keywords related to the event. Domainers, however, need to either set some ethical boundaries, or be judged for their poor taste in domain registrations.
