Is the Taleban a for-profit entity? Just wait til ICANN hears about this!

taliban.com|org|net, taleban.org and taleban.net are cybersquatters. How clueless. Waiting around for that million-dollar offer from whom? Desperate dot-commers trying to catch that elusive terrorist vibe?

I recommend people read this excellent article from the LRB on the Taliban - it really helped me understand what was happening there.

Was there something strange there? If so, a screen shot should have been provided. By the time I got here, nothing looked strange.

Actually, that happens a lot with these "hack" announcements.

The hack message wasn't worth saving. It was one or two sentences of Russian h4x0r that didn't make a lot of sense.

It's been hacked again... Here's what the message says in case the server admin actually does his job:

I tell you that I'll BACK I AM BACK I don't hack without any reason,but IT'S a reason I hate TERRORISTS such as taleban USAMA BIN LADEN ,who support MASKHADOV , IBN AL KHATTAB and other bad people in war against RUSSIA.Do you hear about new terrorists actions that take away 21 life of our people. How you can write me that you are not TERRORISTS! You are ! It's my answer! I am very glad that a lot of people approve me for this action ,BIG THANKS for your opinion .Hacked by RyDen Alfa_X Research Group ry_den@mail.ru Special greets to Luba,P.S.To sysadmin of the hosting:You can see what I can to do ,but I don't ,it's only against TALEBAN! I HATE THEM ALL
