I have a domain name i've been using since August of 1996 (near 18 years now, yow). We'll call it color-noun.com. When i registered the name, colornoun.com was in use by a guy running some MUD (a Multi-User Dungeon, online adventure game). I'd occasionally get irritated email messages demanding that their character be created already and i'd cheerfully (perhaps with a little snark) pass them on. Eventually colornoun.com slipped into the pile of domains that are used by domain farms. This morning i got a notice that colornoun.com changed hands from JJH INVESTMENTS to UNIREGISTRAR CORP.

Someday all the correctly spelled English language domain names in the dot-com space are going to simply be landing pages with lots of Google ads.
