Our least favourite public interest organisation, the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL), has just been served a delicious lesson in how not to secure your web presence. One of its domain names lapsed, and now it has been swooped upon by the Australian Cat Ladies.

The domain is australianchristianlobby.org, and it used to redirect to the Australian Christian Lobby’s main site, ACL.org.au.

The Australian Cat Ladies are pretty pleased with themselves, saying that they overtook the site to change the conversation from “religious bigotry” to conversations about cats, which we’re all for!

The Australian Cat Ladies are now taking expressions of interest for membership, and when said in a statement about the founding of the group, “Meow meow, meow MEOW meow meow MEOOOOOW purrrrrrr“.
