It was not intended to be a request. It was not intended to be offensive 
either. It was merely a comment on what was happening. Which bit did you 
find offensive? You were asking on this list specifically for 
instructions on how to cybersquat, an activity which a vast number of 
people find offensive in and of itself. And the comment was directed at 
the people who were giving you information on how to achieve it. It was 
not meant to offend them either, it was merely a playful poke in the 
ribs. It seems from their later posts that it didn't offend them, which 
is good.

Untrue. Google for my email address and you will find that in the past I 
have given advice and help to people trying to develop web applications. 
And cybersquatting is not web development.

My remark denied you nothing. It was just that, a remark. And you could 
get the info from a million sources besides this list. Websites, books, 
IRC, newsgroups, etc, etc. Try typing "how does DNS work" into google. 
You could read from now until the end of the decade ...

You are too ready to see prejudice and offensiveness where there is 
none. You also have quite an attitude. I think you'll find it is this 
rather than your ethnicity that is the determining factor in the 
response you get from people.
