    The other day I was bored so I bought a domain of my mate's name, and pointed it to a gay-porn site. You know just for kicks.

    Then I tell him type in your name in the url box. BAM! Gay porn!

    He freaks and offers me $20. I take it 'cause I'm just greedy like that.

    This gives me an idea :D

    I see where your going with this, clever idea. But I think it is essentially blackmail.

    You're probably right. Although, I have the right to register a domain if I want, the right to point it to any site I choose, and if I tell someone to type in their name it's not my fault...

    It's only blackmail if you force them to pay... You can't tell a person where they can and cannot point a domain. But if the domain is registered in bad faith you can potentially lose it I believe.
