Despite The News, FireHolder.com Not Being Used
I’m not very interested in politics, but I do watch and read the news daily. Lately, there has been quite a bit of news regarding United States Attorney General Eric Holder. There was apparently a “Fire Eric Holder” protest held that was reportedly shut down. In any case, it probably hasn’t been a good few weeks for Mr. Holder.
In May of 2011, it was reported that the domain name FireHolder.com was sold for $2,595. Domain portfolio owner Huge Domains appears to have been the seller. I am not sure who bought the name, but at one point there was a site dedicated to the “National Campaign to Fire Attorney General Eric Holder” according to the screenshot from February 2012. The logo for the National Rife Association of America appears on the bottom of the screenshot.
For some reason, the site appears to be abandoned, as it’s now a simple Network Solutions under construction page. It seems strange that an entity would pay almost $3,000 for a domain name, use it for a short period of time, and when it seems most opportune to have a website operational, it’s not being used.
Anyway, I thought it was interesting.
