Remembered out of nowhere that there is an entire TLD called .frogans, which is reserved for “Frogans sites”
What are Frogans sites?

As far as I can tell, they have supplied no reason for this to exist; no rallying cry like “the web is too complicated” or “end online surveillance”
They just wanted pixel perfect layouts in XML and decided the best way to do that was to become a domain registrar

• Victor Lustig, the fraudster who “sold” the Eiffel Tower, listed “being a patient listener” as the first commandment of con men.
Let's not be surprised if people who are in distress shun the doctors and turn to quacks.
