You know, it is quite possible that the company is run by Apaches.
In that case, there would be no problem.  It appeard the registration
was done by a provider, so there is no hint about who the "real"
owner is beside their Organization name.  No wasy to tell.  Needless
to say I won't be back there.

Their web site sucks, but so do many others, and their existance
does not validate or invalidate the use of the name Apache.  I think
a statement like rst's should be made, I'm not saying we cave in when
the first person complains, but I'd like to at least tell people
that yes we are aware of the potential problems and never had
any wish to offend.

BTW the fact that the product is free also really has no bearing,
other than to say you can't get money by suing us.
