.com or .org?
The next door neighbor just put up a couple Obama signs in her front yard. Taking a brief look at them I noticed the Obama web site url ends with .com. Silly Obama worshippers, don't they know that a political organization is supposed to use .org at the end of the url?
I've always been under the impression that .com stands for a commercial web site and .org is for political or non- profit organizations. Have I been wrong all this time?
So I come in here and take a look to see if some of the other candidates have it right. Taking a look at McCain's site, nope, he's using .com, too.
Certainly my very own Libertarian Party has it right, don't we? I don't remember ever paying attention before. Nope, even Bob Barr's site uses .com. How embarrassing. At least the Libertarian Party's web site itself uses .org.
The Green Party's, Cynthia Mckinney, follows everyone with a .com, as well, along with the Constitution Party's Chuck Baldwin. The only presidential candidate I found using .org was Ralph Nader.
What a sordid state of affairs, at least as far as the internet goes. Maybe I'm wrong and maybe it's considered accepted usage to use .com for non- commercial stuff, but that's not the impression I was under.
