Thanks for all your support. It is very gratifying to see that the Linux
and *BSD camps can put aside their (very minor) difference and unite for a
common goal, stopping domains from being stolen. I must, however, clarify
Ricks comments. I believe that when Rick said "make this guy's life a
living hell" that he meant basicly nag this guy until he returns
bafug.org. I hope that no one mistook that to be a call to commit illegal
acts. I ask you to call this guy on the phone, to send him emails and faxes
asking him to return bafug.org to it rightful place but please lets keep
this a clean fight.
Again, thanks
