Sometimes I Wish That It Would Rain Here

an intentional typo?

I remember back in the day when there were dozens of websites whose URLs were very nearly the names of popular sites (e.g., www.yahhoo.com or www.hotmial.com), one assumes meant to capitalize on typos. well yesterday, I stumbled across another such page. only, the site whose URL it mocks is, I suspect, not quite as popular as yahoo or hotmail.

look at the URL for this site: numinoria.blogspot.com. now, switch the s and the p, and enter that into your browser. you will be taken to AmazingBibleStudies, which is pretty much exactly what it says (if not exactly Amazing). "wow," I said to myself, quite baffled, "why is this evangelist trying to get traffic intended for my site?"

turns out, it's not particular to this blog. blogpsot.com will do it, as will putting any prefix on that URL (www., craptastic., whatever., etc.). ah, drat, I guess I haven't incited the traffic-stealing ire of any
proselytizing Christians, but rather the whole of blogger has. oh well, I can always hope.

  • And, see, this is infinitely fun. Because we can send it to things like "forgetthatwackyjesusguyanyway.blogpsot.com" and "dingoesatemykidneys.blogpsot.com"

    Fun for the whole family!
