Bloomberg Decides Not to Buy Insulting Web Domains

Michael Bloomberg GGood news New Yorkers, you might be able to own bloombergsucks.nyc or fuckbloomberg.nyc after all. According to The New York Post, Michael Bloomberg has told his lawyers to cancel the purchase of those domains (along with about 400 others).

Domain Name Wire had reported that Bloomberg bought a slew of .nyc domains that seemed insulting to the former mayor. Now a spokesperson says only “straightforward” domains — like officialmikebloomberg.nyc — will be purchased. “This appears to be overly aggressive legal due diligence,” said the spokesperson, in a statement.

That means domains such as michaelbloombergisaweiner.nyc, bloombergistoorich.nyc and bloombergmoron.nyc can all be yours, if you’re willing to shell out the cash. And why wouldn’t you be?
