Microsoft is evil. We all know this.

Today I was who is'ing some major corporations to see what other site they are hosting on there server and guess what.

Microsoft has the site tedbundyforpresident.com

I guess someone in there IT department thought it would be funny. It is a direct mirror of microsoft.com

FWIW, tedbundyforpresident.com isn't hosted on Microsoft's servers. Someone thought it would be clever and/or funny to make tedbundyforpresident.com an alias for microsoft.com (which can be done without permission from anyone at Microsoft).

Yes it is hosted on Microsoft.com server

I went to www.whois.sc They are the KING for who is'ing.

I searched for microsoft.com and it came up with 11 other listings using the same IP address. Meaning that it is hosted on Microsoft's server by microsoft.

Try it for yourself, you will need to do the free registration to see.

tedbundyforpresident.com isn't hosted anywhere -- it's a DNS alias for microsoft.com. Since the domain servers listed in the whois information for tedbundyforpresident.com aren't Microsoft DNS servers, it looks like this is an external prank designed to fool gullible people into thinking that Microsoft is hosting tedbundyforpresident.com.
