My opinion of cybersquatters is not fit for print.  If I had my way, 
what he's doing would be completely illegal.  If there's any way Dries 
can sue his ass for trademark infringement, I think he should.  That guy 
has no right to profit from the Drupal name and holding the domain 
hostage like that is totally disrespectful to the community who's 
software he's (still!!) using.  What a f***ing schmuck.
