Remember Pool-Aid, the group working on McCarren Pool issues? There's a reason we're not linking to them directly: A Pool-Aid email is circulating noting that they lost their poolaid.org domain and that the buyer wants to sell it back to them. The email says, in part:
due to some technical snafus over the last couple of months, we lost the ownership of the domain poolaid.org. Just today I was finally able to get in touch with the new, current owner, but being a good capitalist that he is, he wants an offer of over $200 for us to regain ownership of the domain...The guy said he has rejected offers of $200 so we want to go back to him with more than $200...The good news is that a domain name search reveals many alternate possibilities including poolaidonline.org, poolaidlive.org, thepoolaid.org, officialpoolaid.org and, our favorites, newpoolaid.org and easymccarrenpool.org. So, all is not lost in case the dude wants way more than $200.
