less spectacular failure? :) I really don't know, I imagine this sort of
thing happened with 1-800 numbers for customer support type things. Say,
speaking of 1-800 things, how does that system work? why don't the
equivalent 'domain tasters' on the phone side exploit the ability to sign
up 1-8XX numbers like mad and send the calls to their ad-music call
centers?
