TribesRPG.com

Yesterday I was able to obtain the domain name tribesrpg.com. It now redirects to tribesrpg.org. Story follows.

Someone else had that domain for even longer than I had tribesrpg.org. For the entire time, attempting to view tribesrpg.com would time out, as if whoever was paying for it never wanted to make use of it. The domain's contact details were also hidden so the owner could not be contacted. Recently, the owner stopped paying and allowed it to expire. During the several-month grace/auction period, I (as the owner of tribesrpg.org) was sent emails from random mostly-gmail addresses (with female names) suggesting I could buy tribesrpg.com from them (they were offering it for $99, ha ha).

It became available yesterday and I bought it from a normal registrar. $11 USD. Oops, none of those scammers thought to register it before asking me to pay them.
