Stink on Domain Names

I run a few domains and one I bought has caused a bit of stink. Dwell Furniture is a style of furniture inspired by the famous American Dwell Magazine. So I bought Dwell Furniture to discuss the same sort of style and also cover the Dwell UK company.

The Dwell Furniture company were not keen and it seems that the search engines don't like it either. The company I work for placed adverts on the site, they sell furniture and the site is about furniture.

I work with an Old Fart

He's always moaning about new technology, actually shorten that, he's always moaning.

Anyway I've set him up with a blog now so he can moan away at leisure, his first post is moaning about Mobile phones.

Oops

Some time back I bought a few speculative domains looking at the history of various furniture retailers.

One of these was Dwell Furniture, the company Dwell are starting to now kick up a fuss. You have to ask why they didn't buy the domain in the first place if it's so dam precious to them.
