AntipodeanPr0n: Cyberjacking or Inattention?

As of 18-August 11:15am +08:00 (Saturday morning, Perth time) the domain name identified with one of Australia's most consistent short fiction outlets, Antipodean SF, leads to a page proclaiming "adult material not appropriate to be viewed by minors" and offering the domain name for sale, while AntiSF's raw Internet Protocol address, 209.61.177.79, points to a hardcore site called "The Adult Movie Network".

20-Aug-01: Editor and Publisher Ion Newcombe reports that his recently-closed Sydney-based ISP apparently failed to renew the registration of his domain name, and that he intended to move AntipodeanSF to the domain antipodean-sf.com while he attempted to recover antipodean-sf.com. The whois database reveals that the new owners (the Canadian company Marketing Extensions Inc.) registered the domain on 15-August.
