Blessed Atheist, A Runaway Name
The original name of this blog was Blest (Blessed, American spelling) Atheist, but that name was hijacked two years ago by a furniture company that was not called Blest Atheist at all. However, the hijacked URL took the reader there. Apparently, a number of URLs led to the same furniture company, now touting home exteriors and interiors. There used to be a catalogue of furniture that one could buy at that site. Now, it is just a Word Press example of a possible Internet site.
A lot of hacking of blogs was being done at that time. Maybe they still are, but I have not heard anyone talking about that these days as they were a couple of years ago.
Recently, however, when I checked on the status of my old URL, I found something curious. The domain name, Blessed Atheist (don't click unless you are willing to read a fair amount of blasphemy), had been acquired (from the furniture company?) by a real atheist, or should I say, a current atheist. After all, I was a real atheist, but not I am a former atheist. (Confusing, isn't it?)
I guess I will stick with 100th Lamb. It seems to be sticking with me -- and not wandering off to other sites.
