I own  That, once upon a time, was the Flathead Software Foundry.  I, obviously, registered that domain pretty early in the grand scheme of things.

If the actual Free Software Foundation wants it (they've never asked), it's theirs for the cost of registration.  Everyone else can just eff right off.  I turn down offers for it occasionally, but none of them have come close to what I consider a reasonable cost for my effort for migrating off of it would be.
