Here you go, somebody just registered NoSFOlympics last month, both the .com and the .org:
Here are the deets:

Now, who would do this? There are three possibilities I can think of. It was:
1. Somebody who opposes spending tens of billions of dollars bringing the 2024 Olympics to the Bay Area. Perhaps it’s just taking them a long time to get started; Or…
2. Somebody who wants to sell these URLs to the nascent anti-Olympics movement in the Bay Area. This could be called cybersquatting, by some. Or good business, by others. I mean, it’s not a crime or anything; Or…
3. Somebody who supports spending tens of billions of dollars bringing the 2024 Olympics to the Bay Area but doesn’t want people opposed to have the obvious URL. This would be a little cheesy. I mean, I’m against spending all that money but I would never register 2024SF.org just so that the boosters couldn’t use it.
In any event, somebody’s sitting on these URL’s, for some reason.
It’s an Olympic mystery…
