Tagurls: Why TagURLs?

Tagurls: Why TagURLs?: "What happened to Delexa.org?
The same thing that happened to Alexaholic.com and AlexaResearch.com.

Alexa is upset you are using their data?
Actually no, though I'll be switching from Alexa's data very shortly. Instead, they claim the domain name "Delexa.org" infringes their trademark.

From the legal notice I received:

We represent Alexa Internet, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc., and are writing to you in regard to our investigation of apparent trademark infringement and cybersquatting by one of your customers. The registrant of the Delexa.org domain name has registered a domain name that is confusingly similar in appearance and sound to our client's trademark ALEXA. This use of a confusingly similar domain name has not been authorized by our client and constitutes trademark infringement and unfair competition under U.S. law.
