Drives me nuts that people can simply hammer out tons of address names hoping that it eventually means something to someone who has money to throw away.

I would prefer they die in a carpet fire ;)

Stupid domain squatters. Strongly agree with nicklozon on this one, they all need to die in a fire. Or multiple fires if that's more convenient.

I know how that feels.....I lost my .net domain because I forgot to renew it right away, all it was was a site for dumping my random files. Mirror this or that and a small forum, apparently someone thought it was worth 8 grand...

Why not just use a .org? It seems more appropriate anyways, since .org was designed for non-profit organizations and Mineserver is non-profit, isn't it?

I just went crazy ;D and registered mineserver.ms , but their system is not completely online or whatever, so the domain doesn't work yet. I'll setup a redirect, too.

mineserver.ms finally got set up, the best I could do was a HTML redirect to mineserver.be

Contact ICANN

If someone is squatting a domain just to try and make money off your potential traffic. ICANN sometimes can cancel that domain.
