I love it!

Optus.com redirected to TPG DSL signup page.

Is TPG involved I wonder or is this guy just anti-Optus....

This is classic.

Says he has had it since 1995. or .. Atleast its been registered since
then.

How can Optus NOT want to protect their interests in this domain. The
guy even lives in .au. quite funny.

His link includes a dealer code of 'VXNET' which is obviously passed to
TPG's systems... So many he is using the OPTUS name to make some
cash.... Fun while it lasted I guess ;-)

Take a look at www.optus.com

I wonder how long they can keep this going? I registered the domain 
inokia.net around two years ago, six weeks after the registration 
(without even delegating the domain) I had a letter from Nokia's 
solicitors in Finland with a threat to sue me.

WHOIS details below, quite interesting.

Samuel
