Article discusses cybersquatter who calls himself a domainer.
One of the top stories on CNN.com today is about a self-proclaimed “domainer”.
Unfortunately, that domainer is a cybersquatter, so the article doesn’t paint domainers in a positive light.
The article is about Taikwok Yung. I’ve written about Yung before, when he registered domains related to Bank of America and Merrill Lynch when they planned their merger.
Back then I took issue with him calling himself a domainer, since he was clearly cybersquatting.
The article mentions that Yung describes himself as a “domainer”. It also talks about domain parking.
Since he describes himself as a domainer, the general public that reads this article will now think domainer means cybersquatter.
