Can any of you techno-sleuths find out who is behind this website with a copy-cat name?

Nope, just a page someone set up to benefit off of a common typo. there's thousands like them all across the web. also seen often when you use .com instead of .net, etc.

even detriot.com is another example.

I assumed someone familiar with this site would have been behind it.

My next question, then, is why? Can someone actually make money doing this?

yes, they have ads on the site that they make money off of. they also have been known to sell the domains to interested companies for surprisingly large amounts. for example, google may not want googl.com going to a competing search site, so they could buy the name - but since another company holds it, they may have to pay thousands of dollars to get it.

with lower profile sites, they're not going to get much, but it can still be more than they bought the domain for.

LOL- I think I'll pass on registering that one. I also noticed that www.livernoisyard.com is also available as well!

I guess for Lowell's ego- it's nce to know that you've become enough of a success that people are trying to imitate you.
