    Thanks for the report, Jeff! W.org is a totally awesome domain, and extremely rare considering one-character .org’s were only made available relatively recently (and there’s only 36 of them). It’s good to see Matt jump on that.

    I’d also love to see Matt (or the foundation) somehow acquire the WP.org domain as well, especially since I see it used as a very frequent abbreviation of WordPress.org.

    Some domain owners are just completely unresponsive for no apparent reason at all, I’m sure he’s already tried.

    I’ve seen the owner of WP.org listed on several other top-tier domains as well, I get the feeling they don’t give them up very easily.

    Hey Jeff,

    didn’t know this. I did know that Matt likes to collect domains – and to be honest, who doesn’t?
