Dot-Sucks Web Contest! Call for Entries
20 Dec 2000
The new internet top level domain (TLD) ".SUCKS"
is reserved for parody and critique.
TM owners need not apply!
Dot-Sucks Web Contest!

How many corporations do you think "SUCK"?
What are your favorites? Are you willing
to create a web site devoted to your favorite
"sucky" corporation?

Name.Space will provide free web hosting
(NO ADS!) and domain registration under the
".SUCKS"* domain to the 10 best (unique)
submissions!

Sites will be judged on originality, humor,
and political/social relevance.

Some examples of possible sites may include:

WTO.SUCKS
DISNEY.SUCKS
ICANN.SUCKS
AOL.SUCKS
CNN.SUCKS
TIMEWARNER.SUCKS
NIKE.SUCKS
MONSANTO.SUCKS
(and so on...)

Send your submissions to:

dot-sucks (at) namespace.org

You should have the pages up
and running somewhere (you can
build it on one of the free web
providers--we'll look past the
oblgitory ads). Submissions
should include the URL of the
site and a brief description.
The site itself must speak for
itself.

Deadline: 01.01.01

The ".SUCKS" domain is published
and operated by Name.Space and is
reserved for parody and free speech.
No corporations or individuals may
register in a ".SUCKS" domain in
order to squelch criticism. Name.Space
will screen all applicants to confirm
that they are NOT the holders of the
"trademark" or "brand" name that
".SUCKS".

*To resolve ".SUCKS" and more than
500 other new TLDs, and to show your
solidarity for media autonomy, switch
your DNS settings (in your TCP/IP
controls) to Name.Space by following
the simple instructions at
http://namespace.org/switch

**The domains "Microsoft.Sucks"
and "MPAA.Sucks" are already registered!

namespace.org/switch
