Amazon Owns Amazonsucks.com (and Plenty Worse Than That)

If you're a huge commercial organisation, it pays to not have too many random people on the internet making cheap jokes at your expense. Which is, presumably, why Amazon owns a slew of silly and offensive domains that include its name.

As well as Amazonsucks.com, you can include Screwamazon.com, Amazonstinks.com and — my personal favourite — Fuckamazon.com. You have Alex Shepard to thanks for this discovery:

Buying up domains is, of course, common practice, but clearly someone in Amazon's legal department is doing their best to avoid any potential embarrassment. Still, this seems like a challenge: what's the best name you can find that Amazon hasn't yet registered? Bonus points if you buy it and use it in an amusing way.
