RE: Brands rush to register ‘.sucks’ domains despite concern over pricing

Anyone notice that if you search one of the "Recently Registered" names scrolling on the nic.sucks page, they may still be listed as Available with the registrars? I tried TINDER.SUCKS and XBOX.SUCKS and they were both still listed as available. If so, then Vox Pop is lying. If not, then the registrars are not being informed. In either case. someone needs to blow the whistle on this scam.
