Kevin,

Yes, this is old news.

Due to a slip up on our part the dns entry libtiff.org fell into the
hands of DNS pirates and was sold to the current owner for several
thousand euros to harvest it's positive google karma for a link farm.

It is out of our control.  Really.  Honestly.  And I'd rather not
angst over it any more.

Best regards,
