ACL comments on outrageous domain name squatting

WE WILL DECLARE WAR IF NECESSARY

we r so angry

Dear faithful Cat Ladies,  Cat Lady allies, and other readers,

It has come to our attention that some ne’er-do-well has purchased the domain name http://www.australiancatladies.org and has redirected it to a similarly-titled organisation’s webste, http://www.acl.org.au.

[UPDATE: Apparently it now redirects to a Google Image Search for ‘dogs’. THIS IS EVEN WORSE.]

Needless to say, we are OUTRAGED. Our cats are letting out angry yowls as we speak! MEOW!!??!!?!?!

Who would DARE to so BLATANTLY and IMMORALLY squat a domain name like this?!!!? Just disgusting. Now hard working salt-of-the-earth Cat Ladies will be met with EXTREMIST ANTI-CAT PROPAGANDA when all they’re attempting to do is look at cuddly cat pictures.

We ask the perpetrators behind this, do you mock DOGS as much as you mock cats? Why do you single cats out for special harsh treatment? Is it because you know cats are an easy target?!?!?! You absolute cowards. You should be ashamed of yourselves, you smarty-pants canine-lovers.

We bet you’re dog-owners. Did you know that we even have some dog-owning friends? They don’t agree with the immature mockery you’re trying to make of us. You’re just giving them a bad name.

We have a right to free speech!!! You can’t censor us! Our meows will be heard wide and loud! You’ve just given us more publicity!!!

We will pray for you, after we have had our afternoon nap.

    Apparently, they undid the redirect LOL So the battle is on? Are there negotiations going on in the background?

    As cat ladies, we should treat the whole thing with supreme indifference, scratch our ears, look into the middle distance for a moment, and curl up for a nap. Pffft.

    hahaha, I’m betting a cute puppy dog registered australiancatladies.org and just wants to play with you cat ladies. Or *puts on conspiracy hat* that you registered it yourself and pointed it to the ACL for some laughs. That would be hilarious. Cats are pretty cunning creatures you know. WOOF!! But good to see you registered a facebook page, even if you couldn’t get your full name in the facebook username, but at least you have the same facebook username as your twitter, so all good there. 🙂

    Like, I get that you’re young and you think all this is funny, but really, some of the guys you are trying to emulate should not be looked up to. If you want to go far, find better role models

      Like, I get that you think by using young people speak you come across as all youthful and relevant, but really, you’re not fooling anyone Cardinal Pell!

  6. It would appear to be pointing to an image search for dogs. Despite the suggestion that love between cats and dogs might be unacceptable, I have seen many a purring feline snuggled up in front of a fire by a shaggy old dog. it is not up to the state nor the wowsers to decide whom a cat should love!

    Regardless, as a “Mad cat man”, I approve of the Australian Cat Ladies, and their notion that a person should be allowed to take as a companion whomever they like, be they male or female. Good work!

    ‘www’ is a subdomain of australianchristianlobby.org… not sure how/if they’re allowed to occupy it?

  8. hahahaha, glad you liked my prank with the domain name AustralianCatLadies.org and saw the funny side. You thought it was funny taking AustralianChristianLobby.org and I thought it was funny taking AustralianCatLadies.org and pushing it to ACL.org.au.

    Despite what the Jezebel article says, I just thought it would be fun to take that domain and push it back to the ACL for a bit of a laugh. I have no political agenda. I figured you ladies had a pretty good sense of humour, and figured it could drum up some more media coverage for yous. You’re welcome. 😉

    I’m just a playful kitty who saw a ball of string roll past me, so I pounced on it and played with it, like any kitty would. I did get a kick out of te Jezebel article calling me “a particularly ruthless political opponent”. I feel like such a bad kitty now. 😀

    But seriously, if you want AustralianCatLadies.org, scratch me on the tummy the right way and fetch me some warm milk and another bright red ball of string, and we’ll see what happens.

  9. @Lauren, AustralianCatLadies.org is setup on a server totally separate from australianchristianlobby.org, so the two sites are not connected in anyway. There’s nothing on the server, just a dns redirect to wherever I like, which for now is a google search page for Dogs rule. 😉

    Your word “occupy” there conjured up an image of a bad ass pirate kitty occupying that domain. This also plays well with my new found persona of being described as “a particularly ruthless political opponent” by the Jezebel blog. =)

    This has got to stop!
    the staff around here are not doing their job, this gossiping about ACL has gone on long enough, I demand that every one returns to work immediately!
    Now, clean the litter tray, fed me and then sit down and be quiet so I can have a nap on your lap.
