Porn: Where old domains go to die

This is an amazing case-study documenting a porn-site that has registered over 4,000 expired domains and pointed them at itself (presumably on the grounds that people following old bookmarks and links to the original site will see the porn and possibly register for the site). The documentation is really amazing: The author’s gone back to archive.org snapshots of the old domains to see what they looked like and what their meta-tags said they were about.
