I just want to rant for a second about squatters. I am about to launch my own server so of course I need a domain name, and every single one I have come up with and wanted so far is being squated on. Its such a joke. These stupid companies (if you want to call them that) just buy up domain names like candy and than sit of them. Then god forbid you want to use that domain name they want like eight or nine hundred bucks from you. What a joke, its not like they have Uggg. So ya, I have been taxing my brain all night long, I am not this creative, and I don't have 800 bucks to buy a domain name.

Jus to take the icing on the cake, I just found out that the company thats squatting on the domain I want the most, also owns the domain thats just evil.

Well, you could always file a trademark with the trademark people in the US and then sue the current owners to get the domain.
