MUSU (Truth and) Lies

For those keeping an eye on the rivetting saga of the collapse of the Melbourne Uni Student Union there's a curious little teaser which recently popped up on the web at www.MUSUlies.com:

MUSU TRUTH & LIES
The consipracy of silence: what Melbourne's media, academic elite, political commentariat and labor apparatchiks won't tell you about the downfall of the Melbourne University Student Union Inc

The inside story, authorised by former President Darren Ray.

LAUNCHING SOON


And that's it. For now, at least.

Is it really former president... sorry, that should read disgraced former president... Dazzling Darren who's behind this curious little piece of internet publishing? Too early to tell at this stage, although the owner of the domain name has gone to some lengths to conceal their identity.

The folks at NetworkSolutions have this information on the registration of the domain name:

Registrant:
Domains by Proxy, Inc.
DomainsByProxy.com
15511 N. Hayden Rd., Ste 160, PMB 353
Scottsdale, Arizona 85260
United States

Registered through: GoDaddy.com
Domain Name: MUSULIES.COM
Created on: 22-Apr-05
Expires on: 22-Apr-06
Last Updated on: 22-Apr-05

Hmmm, the date makes sense, with the site coming on line just days after the registration, but what do we know about DomainsByProxy? DbyP have this little teaser on their front page:

The law requires that the personal information you provide with every domain you register be made public in the "WHOIS" database. Your identity becomes instantly available - and vulnerable - to spammers, scammers, prying eyes and worse.

But now there's a solution: Domains By Proxy!

Worse?? Like what? The Supreme Court of Victoria?

I'll sell you mine if you want. Not quiet as good but it does end with voices in my head talking to me. Very dramatic.
