    I don't know. But I see it misleading to do that.

    Erm... I fail to see how registering a domain name thats slightly different from someone elses is 'smart' thinking.

    I mean, its a very common trick!

    Being close to a familiar store is common in the 3d world. Ever noticed that certain stores always seem to spring up close to others; you can almost count on it. In the web world the only way to be close is by the URL. I think it is OK as long as it is obvious which store (site) you are in. I further think that the rackshak guy did it right. Notice that he/she is not even pushing servers, does not attempt to look like rackshack. This is OK in my book.

  11. dont talk about rackshak.net

    They dont even own www.rackshack.com .
    rackshack dot com is not even selling servers, guess what they are selling Banana Kayaks in Honolulu. They even have this large picture of 4 kayak geeks on the frontpage.

    lol thats probably why they chose rackshack.net rather than .com

    not sure though

  14. You are wrong, Rackshack(the rackshack we know) were beaten by the kayak nerds to getting it, so they settled for .net instead.
