An organisation has registered the expired Saudi-binladin-group.com domain and started to sell advertising space on the website starting at $1 per 100 pixels.
The website is banking on advertisers that are seeking pay-back against the man that is held responsible for the terrorist attacks of 9/11 – and who has been cut off by his relatives. (Apperently you can spell it both Bin Laden and Bin Ladin.)
The current owners claim that the domain was once owned by the Bin Laden family and expired on the day of the terrorist attacks. They also claim that even four years after the expiration of the domain, it is still being used by people seeking to email the family and for "terrorist related material".
Call me cynical, but this smells like a cheap money making scam and a million dollar homepage ripp off. Any emails that reach the account today surely must be coming from people who have nothing to do with the family (who else would use an email address that expired 4 years ago?). Besides, the firm provides no actual proof that the domain name was once owned by the Bin Laden familiy.
The compay claims it is planning to donate part of the profits to charity. I keep telling myself the same when my pay check comes in. And then stuff happens (mostly restaurants happen) and I postpone the noble donation plans for another month. Plans don't build houses, actions do.
