Cameroon cashing in?

I don't know if this has ever happened to you, but sometimes I'll be typing in a URL and I'll type .cm instead of .com. If that's ever happened to you, you should remember that it takes you to this site. I'd always wondered what .cm was a country code for, any why did all of its sites seem to lead to this Agoga thing. Well, thanks to Wikipedia, I've found the answer. .cm is used for the African nation of Cameroon. Check out this little article on the subject. So basically, Cameroon is using the similarity between .com and .cm to make a ton of money.
