Well not quite. Lon appears to have registered govairs.com (GOVAIRS) in
2000 (for some reason I could not get it to resolve). Meanwhile the Greater
Orlando club (Titus) registered govairs.net (G.O.Vairs) in 2004. Different
domains with different purposes (I usually register with a .us domain
because it says something about me). To someone who has a number of
different domains, these are very different sites.
Now I doubt that a local club is going to be commercial competition for
Lon, particularly since his establishment is about as far away as you can
get and still be in CONUS, I have never had any problems with confusion
between padgett.com (a printer in Texas) and padgett.ws (mine - the .us was
Still the problem seems be whether or not Lon feels there is a conflict
with a charity show put on last weekend in Florida.
