8 May, 2005

It is very sad to report that another Netscape support site, UFAQ (The Unofficial Netscape FAQ, http://ufaq.org/ ), is cybersquatting SillyDog701. Instead of uniting resources, they chose to divide Netscape users and worsen friendships. We were shocked and condemn their behaviour.

In the past, UFAQ.org has removed all links and references to SillyDog701 from its website and its forums. And SillyDog701 responded by not banning back, not removing any forum messages referring to UFAQ.org (SillyDog701's official response and another reference)

SillyDog701's url is sillydog.org. Please make sure you type it correctly. Even under such cybersquatting, SillyDog701 will continue to provide a friendly and informative place for all Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox and Mac users.

Please see this thread for more background information.

What have they done?

They remove all links to SillyDog701, and now, they are trying to cybersquat SillyDog701 with following domains sillydog701.org, sillydog.info and sillydog.us. (A known list at time of writing, the list could be longer.)

Again, SillyDog701's url is sillydog.org. Please make sure you type it correctly.

Typing sillydog701.org and sillydog.us will show you the same result. SillyDog701's domain has been cybersquatted by UFAQ.org.

SillyDog701 has been a Netscape resource site since 1999, and is proud to provide a nice and friendly community venue for all Netscape, Mozilla, Firefox, as well as Mac users. Over those years, we've seen the falling of Netscape and coming back of Netscape, SillyDog701 has been here, and acted an important role for supporting Netscape.

Please see this thread for more detail.
