I registered bitcointalk.org originally, then passed along control.
It is likely that the two domains are /not/ registered and controlled
in the same way.

The handling of bitcointalk.org was quite disappointing.  Even after
"control" passed from me to Sirius, he did not bother to change the
registrar credentials for months afterward, despite repeated urging.
