Squatting on Cyber and Physical Premises seems to be the fashion of the day...
Be it Internet or a public transportation footboard or a open poromboke (waste land) or a lake area, one can find illegal people occupying the space with great vigor and interest without caring for the general interests of the public. The following are the responses of such squatters:
- Internet: You can see a number of domain parked sites with reputed industry names too stuck with them. Due to geographical distributions and multi-country legislations recovery seems to be little difficult from such cybersquatters.
- Public Transportation Footboard Travellers: Despite the fact that they endanger their own lives and limb by travelling on the footboard, they put a big danger to the work of the crew who need to visit the police station and court if something happens to them alongwith the unwanted delays for other passengers not to mention the burden they give to their own families.
- Waste Land Occuption: With much connivance of officials many of the lake areas typically in places like Ambattur are auctioned off and sold for many years. Only when the party-in-power changes, these come out to limelight but even then the political bureocratic red tape processes are loaded with so much inertia that offenders are let go scott-free.
