It seems perfectly obvious to me. "clinton96" is a far more obvious
URL for curiousity seekers to look for than "no-clinton96". In
fact, I'm sure part of their motivation is to annoy Clinton
supporters, who would be looking for a pro-Clinton page at that URL.
Further, capturing a precious slice of Internet namespace and using it
to bash Clinton is a particularly neat way to be nasty. I mean,
wouldn't it be more personnaly annoying if the official Rifkin Hate
Mail Club used "rifkin.org" rather than, say, "hate-rifkin.org".

I'm surprised that an openly cynical, anti-Clinton
page wanted to give itself this URL. I mean, if you're
going to go through all the trouble of slandering and
putting down Clinton, why wouldn't you pick the URL
www.no-clinton96.org or something?
