A pastor in central Queensland has bought two internet domain names which bear the name of Queensland’s Premier Anna Bligh.
Pastor David Ally, from the Mountain of the Lord Christian Church in Mount Morgan, bought the domain names of annabligh.org and annabligh.net in September of 2007, when Bligh took over the role from Peter Beattie. This now allows him to create websites and email addresses using the domain name.
His reasoning – they were available. Telling AAP, he said that, "I actually could not believe that these domains were not taken last year, so I bought them simply because they had not been taken."
Queenslanders are facing an election next year, and Alley has not decided if he will be using them during the campaign. The domain annabligh.com has already been bought – by the Queensland Government, and has not used it.
