The Unnecessary

What are you doing here? Most search engines skip this domain because there’s no real content on it anymore. Perhaps you came by because you are an old member of the Jon Stewart Intelligence Agency, an unofficial fan club that was active for many years. Hi! We had a great thing going for a while there, didn’t we? But we eventually moved on to other hobbies.

Jon Stewart Intelligence Agency
The old homepage.

So why is this page still here? It’s here because I’m afraid that if I let this domain name expire that some weirdo will snatch it up and sell mail order brides who then turn around and sell you car warranties on your wedding night. The very idea of Jon’s name being so misused eats at me, enough so that every year I shell out and renew the darn thing. Yes, I tried to contact Jon and hand off the domain. No reply.

So here I am, protecting someone who doesn’t want or need protecting. Perhaps I am protecting my heart. I bought the domain circa 2002 and made good friends here, some that I have to this day. I have fond memories of late night chats, both stupid and wise. We had a lot of fun. There was a time when this was the center of my social world. You’d be hard pressed to find a bunch of smarter, funnier, hotter fans than Jon Stewart fans. That’s still true. I guess I’m not ready to let go quite yet.

So here I am. An inactive domain NOT trying to sell you anything. There’s not even a pop-up window. Refreshing.

Sincerely,
Annie

P.S. If you want to reconnect or if you think the protecting is worthwhile and want to buy me a coffee and have already donated to food banks and key political elections that need it more, I’m at Annie [at] this domain. The expenses from 2010 on are detailed in the sidebar. Expenses from 2002-2010 or so were partly covered with donations. I never broke even but it helped. It was always a labor of love.
