Am I nuts or is it possible that Hell.com could become one of the web's most valuable addresses?

Okay, ignore the first part of that post... I KNOW I'M NUTS... but what about the price tag for a domain name with a somewhat NEGATIVE meaning?

Seems it's getting quite a bit of traffic just on curiosity alone. That's gotta be worth something.

fuck.com doesn't resolve; shit.com goes somewhere allegedly disgusting (I didn't stay); damn.com actually seems to be the same kind of situation -- a private poetry site; goddamn.com is another "personal expression" site accepting submissions ...

Of course, in a perfect world, they would all resolve to George Carlin's personal site ...

Believe it, it's possible. What's really diggable about that place, though, is the lack of explanation. Sometimes I just want to surf somewhere that doesn't cater to anyone and doesn't ask to be liked. The site does its own thing, and, although it's not for everybody, I believe it does it better than any other site, period. There's some true creative genius going on out there on the web, and I think hell.com (no-such.com) highlights the very best of it all.
Thank God for Hell.
