Who has been to www.spartandieseltechnologies.com???

FYI- anytime you think your going to Spartan Diesel Technologies and you type in 'www.spartandieseltechnologies.com' instead of 'www.spartandieseltech.com' your going to those guys at river city diesel! How low do you have to go to steal someone else's domain?? I'm sorry but I will never support RCD ever!

They didn't steal their domain, they spent a couple bucks and bought the one you listed above and had it redirect them to their home page. I don't see anything wrong with that since they aren't misrepresenting anything. It's clear that you arrive at River City Diesel and not Spartan Diesel Technologies. A simple google search will yield the correct website. They simply saw a way to increase the number of hits their website would receive and did it... Kudos to them for thinking of it.

That couldn't be further from the truth. I am a business owner however, and even though someone doing something like that would piss me off a bit, I would be more angry at myself for not thinking of it first. Business is business...

Yep, unfortunately. Spartan can fight it though with the ICA/ICANN.

I think its wrong. Anything with the words spartan diesel in it should bring you to the spartan website. It makes them look kind of weak if you ask me, like they're not confident they can get there own customer base without doing something sneaky. But yeah im sure it does bring them more sales.

Hate to rain on everyones pissing parade, but spartandieseltechnologies was purchased when Matt and I were still partners starting Spartan Diesel Tech. I own a plethora of web domains and they all redirect to rivercitydiesel.com with the click of one mouse click. Matt and I have just talked about it and have both forgotten that I even still owned that domain. I am going to turn it over to him. At the time in which I bought it was way before Spartan had any national recognition.
