In an attempt to avoid future PR snafus, lawyers for former mayor Michael Bloomberg have snatched up more than 400 .nyc domains that are potentially harmful to the business mogul. This includes, but is not limited to: BloombergSucks.nyc, BloombergBlows.nyc, and MikeIsTooShort.nyc. Complimentary names like MichaelRBloombergRules.nyc were also reportedly included in this $12,000 purchase. [NYDN]
