Unintended webnames

Maybe these companies should have thought a little more laterally about their domain names:

Firstly there is Who Represents, a database for agencies to the rich and famous: www.whorepresents.com

Second is the Experts Exchange, a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views: www.expertsexchange.com

Looking for a pen?  Look no further than Pen Island: www.penisland.net

Need a therapist?  Try: www.therapistfinder.com

And there is an Italian Power-Generation company: www.powergenitalia.com

Finally we have the Mole Station Native Nursery, based in New South Wales: www.molestationnursery.com

And one that is missing from this list that my company registered for an Internet Service Provider leasing program, www.ispleasing.com.  We actually had an on-line porn company call us to see if we would be interested in selling the domain name.

PS: I just ran across another one this afternoon, Transfiguration Catholic Church and School, www.tranny.org, guess they don’t know what a tranny is; but sort of appropriate/amusing given the sex scandals in the Catholic Church.
