Yeah, that post has been up for a little while.
Since ************** is just a subsite of the Hobbyist network, I find it highly doubtful that they have a trademark registered for the domain name.
They'd probably have a heck of a time getting one as well, because it's a name already in the public domain. So any claims of trademark dilution are pointless.
All this really does is make them look stupid in my opinion. If someone else wants to use kingsnakes.com and make a forum about snakes, well duh.
