The Christians Strike Back!

Has anyone noticed this before? Type in (note the transposed "p" and "s") and you are taken to the Amazing Bible's Bible College On Line: A mega-site of Bible, Christian and religious information and studies. For awhile, I thought AB might be trying to use this particular blog to harvest sinners, thinking that my readers are a more than usually depraved lot (plus note the similarity in abbreviated titles). However, if you transpose the two letters of any blogspot blog (that I've tested), you are taken to the same place. Devlishly clever, in that if you type it wrong once and visit the mega-site, the fact that the "ps"comes before "sp" will cause your address bar to display the Amazing Bible page first.

Bit surprised they've been able to get away with this. I thought it was customary for large companies to buy up all the URLs that result from common mispellings and direct them to the proper home-page.

Whooee! Think of all the dough they'll be able to get from Google/Blogger/Blogspot for that domain. What wonderous things they'll be able to do with money, money, money (the root of all evil).

I think you should warn people about all the pop-ups and crap they're going to get from that lovely site. (I have a blocker, but I could hear it jamming away on these things as they were being dished up.) Anyway... miscreants!
