UFAQ.org cybersquats SillyDog701, part 2

“Jay Garcia demands Antony to apologise to someone who cybersquatted SillyDog701.”

Continued from UFAQ.org cybersquats SillyDog701 (part 1).

Why does UFAQ.org need to use three (3) domains - sillydog.info, sillydog.us and sillydog701.info - all consisting "sillydog" to direct traffic to the notorious Number 1 support site?
They are clearly using SillyDog701's popularity to gain traffic. An excellent example of cybersquatting.

SillyDog701 has never self-claimed "Number 1" support site.

SillyDog701 condemns UFAQ.org's dirty tactic to gain traffic. SillyDog701 also urges supporters to spread the word about the correct URL ( sillydog.org ). Their unethical behaviour has forced SillyDog701 to reconsider the relationship with UFAQ.org.

Further,
Jay Garcia said:

Antony, if you tender your apology for posting those stupid charges on your forum, I'll redirect those three domains to your SillyDog site.
What!?
Jay Garcia demands me to apologise to someone who cybersquatted SillyDog701.
Too bad, Antony was not born yesterday.

Fact: ufaq.net (owned by Antony Shen) provides FREE redirection to UFAQ.org as a courtesy.
Fact: The return I receive. sillydog.info, sillydog.us, sillydog701.org (owned by Jay Garcia) all pointed UFAQ.org until the it was discovered by Antony. (A good example of cybersquatting)

Fact: SillyDog701 does not ban visitor's access (except one member). SillyDog701 does not UFAQ.org's access, nor any known people from UFAQ.
Fact: UFAQ.org banned my access to its site at one stage.

Fact: SillyDog701 does not play any stupid word censoring games.
Fact: UFAQ.org played word censoring games at one stage, replacing "SillyDog" to "GoofyMutt", and was caught by Google's Cache.

Also, Jay Garcia said:

I registered those three domains mainly as a joke and in response to Antony's registering of UFAQ.NET and his non-response to my many emails and postings asking him why he registered that domain. Antony has chosen to not respond to that question.
A big lie. Mr Jay Garcia has my email address. I just checked it few hours ago, no new messages from Mr Garcia since last year.
In fact, the formal communication channel is the Feedback page, which Mr Garcia refused to use. As for postings, where did he post to?
