Yes, I recall when the manufacturers of IT stuff in Taiwan suffered from this.

If you required to communicate with them, you needed to ensure it was on a .tw site. (.tw is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Taiwan.)

Names like gigabyte.com, and gigabyte.uk had already been taken and where being used by fraudsters.

I think the companies gave in to such blackmail, and eventually paid up, to acquire the said names.

Not so much a new word - more the meaning......

Shambles - in the general sense means a mess or chaos, however its origins lie in the butchery trade. Every town and city had a 'shambles' and it was the area in which animals were slaughtered and then butchered. I watched Hidden Histories on BBC4 last night and it featured Britain's oldest family business headed by Richard Balson.

Just been reading an article about a vile sex-offender and learned a couple of new words.  As I'm sure did the Bays and Grils at the WEP.

Inculate - Sodomise (Please don't check the UD)

Blndishments -

blandishment

/ˈblandɪʃm(ə)nt/

noun

plural noun: blandishments

a flattering or pleasing statement or action used as a means of gently persuading someone to do something.

Brobdingnagian... you may well ask....

Marked by tremendous size Very Happy


DID YOU KNOW?
In Jonathan Swift's novel Gulliver's Travels, Brobdingnag is the name of a land that is populated by a race of human giants "as tall as an ordinary spire steeple." In Gulliver's first close-up encounter with the giants, he is attempting to get past a stile of which every step is six feet high when a group of field-workers approach with strides ten yards long and reaping hooks as large as six scythes. Their voices he at first mistakes for thunder. Swift's book fired the imagination of the public and within two years of the 1726 publication of the story, people had begun using Brobdingnagian to refer to anything of unusually large size. (Swift himself had used Brobdingnagian as a noun to refer to the inhabitants of Brobdingnag.)
