The Refresh That Pauses


Someone in a Slashdot discussion thread mentions that slashdot.info is apparently being cyber-squatted by Ziff Davis because it points to ZD Net.  Skeptical readers tested that out and then someone points out that it re-directs to Newsforge, a Slashdot-owned site.  Then someone points out that it re-directs to cnn.com.  Apparently, www.slashdot.info points to all those sites, and if you keep hitting refresh, it points to register.co.uk and several more (none of whom are the actual registrant, who is an indivudual in Utah).

This would make a good fact pattern for a law school exam.  Thanks to Nathan for this.
