Miller supporter registers "stephenledrew.ca"

Someone who supports Mayor David Miller is pretty quick on the draw... on the day that Stephen LeDrew announced his intention to run against David Miller for the Mayor's job, they went and registered "www.stephenledrew.ca" and "www.stephenledrew.com"... and what did they go and do with those addresses?

Redirected them to "www.millerformayor.ca". How kind of them.

And you know what? I'll bet the owner will just squat on those addresses until, say, November 14, 2006.

(Of course, it could also be a signal that Mr. LeDrew was himself a little slow coming out of the gate, and might be a bit too "old school" to get this whole new-fangled inter-weeb thinga-ma-jig... and maybe that he hasn't clued into it's power...)

Still, I say that's dirty pool old man, dirty pool... Mr. Bill Sweetman. He's the guy who ran and grabbed those domains before anyone else thought of it... and that's cyber-squatting. It's not a very nice thing to do Bill.

Anyone know who Mr. Sweetman is? Is he a member of Mr. Miller's team? Was this perhaps done at the request of Mayor David Miller? (random speculation on my part... but wouldn't it be fun if it turned out to be true...)

UPDATE: Well lookie who I found...

Many questions... bloggers, let's get digging and find some answers! Here's somewhere to start!

    He may be quick on the draw but to be considered quick he would have registered it using Domains by Proxy to shield his identity (GoDaddy even has the option when registering domains), but I guess that wouldn't be very good marketing for himself. :)
