Overclock.net is the main site, and overclockING.net is a forwarded address...
OverclockED.net is a straight 404 error.
I just think it's a little wierd, like if walmart.com had email address on Walmarters.com...
If I had my guess, I would say it's to prevent/lower the possibility that someone could pose as having direct affiliation with Overclock.net's administration/managment/moderating team. By having the address at overclocked
.net, it would be a harder task to pull off.
It's crud to think that people would try it, but I've seen it happen before. Actually, the last forum I was at, we had a few guys who were banned come back with parody names of the real admins/moderators. The simple types were probably tricked, but they got taken down very quickly.
