Bangkok.org becoming porn site

Bangkok.org becoming porn site - February 19, 2002
We first speculated about this on January 12, 2002 (see blurb below), and now it is coming true Presently, the page contains a casino ad and an "internet eraser" ad, but if you look at the source, the bottom part of the page is filled with porn links. Press control-A, and the porn links appear.
We also notice the contact info has been changed for the domain squatter who registered Bangkok.org. It no longer says "Domain For Sale | Email your offers!" We wonder if the previous owner is trying to get it back.

Bangkok.org - January 12, 2002
We think Bangkok.org was once held by KSC, but it has now been lost to a Lithuanian reseller (according to the whois) for want of a domain registration fee. There's nothing at the address now, but if experience is anything to go by in cases of expired domains, it may soon contain links to porn sites. (And no, .org sites don't have to be non-profits.)
