Just found out GoogleSucks.com owned by Google

    It is funny. I guess Google took over this domain GoogleSucks.com from someone else...

    IMO, it is a nice domain name.

    maybe somebody can tell more story about this.

    Actually that makes perfect sense. If you have that kind of money and someone is badmouthing you the easy way to fix the problem is to buy the guy out and shut down the site.

    many big brands buy these 'sucks' domains and sometimes they even demand it from other owners.

    I doubt they would of taken it off anyone.

    If i owned google, from the point of knowing the way things would go id grab as many combinations of domains like that as i could, to prevent any sites even getting built on those types of domains.

    Makes sense to just keep them out of peoples hands from the start.

    Who says they took it over? They probably own hundreds of domains with google as part of it.

    the owner of the domain could simply be playing games.

    yea im sure they owned it before someone could buy it out. They own pretty much anything related to google so sites don't get famous off of their brand name
