Funny you should say that. :) On my way back from lunch, I heard an ad on the radio for a company in town that said: "or visit blueridgerealestate.org". Yep. dot-org, because the dot-com variant is owned by another company some 50 miles from here. And doing a 'whois' on both shows that "company" didn't get "company.com" because somebody else snagged it first. So it's a crap shoot regarding whether the .com gets you the "official legitimate page"...
