    My friends. I came across this on another forum and I just had to share. The Irony alone if funny.
    Take note of the URL I have listed below. Once you have noted that it is a misspelling of a certain console, click on the URL and see where it takes you[​IMG]:

    Its just a page linking to another page. Companies and people have been doing this for years with product mispellings. Chances are once microsoft finds out he'll get sued for domain and will have to give it up.

    You should remove that person's name. Not the kind of personal information that should be posted on a public forum.

    To be fair, Dan, that info is freely available on the Internet already. As a website owner, his info is in every whois database out there.
