ThreadWatch, WebmasterWorld Catfight?

    February 5, 2005

This was too funny to pass up. According to the Search Engine Roundtable WebmasterWorld has purchased the .net version of the domain.

Here’s the Rustybrick post:

“Nick, the creator of a new great forum/blog named ThreadWatch posted an entry named WebmasterWorld Register – Is this a Wind Up?. Basically, it looks like someone over at WebmasterWorld, affiliated with, Brett Tabke, owner of WebmasterWorld – purchased the .net extension of the domain name.

There is speculation that Brett commented at the entry. Nothing like good old forum cat fights. :)

{update} Brett informed me that he did this to secure the domain for threadwatch. He also purchased the seroundtable varations and offered to transfer it to me at cost.”
