Well, Microsoft has been doing this kind of thing with IE for ages, right?
So, now misspelled domains go to NetSol rather than MSN.  And don't argue
that there are other browsers, because any site's web log stats show that IE
is the only browser.

I mean, the idea isn't so bad.  There are just a few unfortunate side
effects.
