They could have easily chose a variation but instead they said the opportunity was "unique" and they're going to give $8000 to a "stranger" for the domain.

BREAKING NEWS (courtesy of Jimboiam): Just wondering why $8k is being spent to buy this domain when the registrant was Occupy Wall Street Unincorporated Organization 118A Fulton St. #205 New York, NY 10038 US And the owner is Network Solutions, LLC (no state designation). It appears it was set up by OWS, so who is getting paid the $8k? The Spokes Council must answer this.

Hmm with all the out of work computer students, couldn't OWS have found someone who would have been thrilled to do it for free to advance the movement?

Idiots. They are desperate to sell but you are going to give them $8k. I bet that the person who owns it is part of the movement, just trying to cash in.

It does look strange that Occupy would cave to the capitalist ploy of camping on a domain name .....

And why the FUCK are they censoring Ron Lawl's name (RonPaul)?

There's a rumor around the women's tent that the domain name is owned by Ron's campaign manager.

Well you can be sure thats a lie. It is sooooo obvious that there are people infiltrating the group. I mean come on they are probably throwing everything they've got at us.

Other people's money is always easy to spend.

It goes to the credibility of the movement.
