remora
A remora is a fish that follows a shark around making a living stealing its food. By analogy a person who buys a domain name similar to a well known domain either in the hopes of picking up stray hits or holding the name ransom to the owner of the intended site. I discovered that somebody else registered javaglossary.com. This person is not a true remora even though he may be trying to pick up stray hits from my site. He would be a remora if I were the legitimate owner of java-glossary.com.
