:-)

"squatted" is not a bad word here. In the physical world, squatters
are often people who do not have the money to rent a home, because
some rich people put the price of the housing too high. Here, you will
have trouble convincing the users of Tor or Namecoin that it is right
to pay 185 000 $ for a TLD and that, if they cannot afford it, they
have to stay in the slums.

[End of political rant, sorry]
