Will the real Bastille Linux please stand up?

Jack Wallen's eBay seller isn't the only one trying to make a buck off of open source. A cybersquatter has purchased the domain name for Bastille-Linux.org and is demanding $10,000 for its return. Project Leader Jay Beale issued a statement last week, assuring Bastille users that legal action is underway and that the temporary domain name Bastille-Unix.org is currently in place. All downloads for Bastille are still available at Sourceforge. Apparently, the dude is only demanding money but is not trying to dupe users into downloading Trojans from the site.
