Well fuck.me.uk Russia

Apparently Russia is to ban swearing on the Internet!

[You see what I did there, fuck.me.uk is a domain name not a swear word, honest]

It just goes to show what happens when you allow censorship to creep in.

And, of course, nobody is going to invent new swear words, or use, you know, normal words out of context to mean swearing, that could never happen, not in the Russian language. Duck me! that could never happen.

I was wondering if I should set up something for email addresses on some of the more interesting domain names I happen to have. Obviously, to do it right and ensure it is covered by The Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003 I would have to ensure a contract exists with me or A&A as a service provider and the users of these email addresses. Is their likely to be much call for email forwarding for email addresses @fuck.me.uk and @bugger.me.uk at all do you think? I was wondering if I should do something like £1 a year or something

It would be a shame if your email address was not allowed on any Russian social media site, or will it only be Russian swear words, I wonder.

  2. I need to work out the commercials as well as I personally own a few domains like fuck.me.uk, bugger.me.uk, find.me.uk, for.me.uk and so on. I think we could sell email addresses somehow via A&A, but A&A should pay me for the use of the domain. Complicated. However, it seems popular with a few people - so may happen.

  3. Delegating sub-domains would be interesting...

  4. If you're not allowed to use fuck.me.uk to correspond with Russians, perhaps I could offer you an alias in my domain: phucough.eu
