You're right -- there is some design similarity between the hosta.com and AHS 
sites.  That does seem kind of sleazy.  And in the absence of another 
explanation, one could only conclude that it was done to deceive.  However, 
the domain name really doesn't hold any deception if taken separately from 
the site design.

Awhile back, Chick pointed out that a new nursery had opened with the name 
"Bridgewater Gardens."  He didn't seem overly concerned, but might have been

all the way back up to get to your next page?  Sheesh!  Don't you WANT them 
to go to the next page???  All those same links at the top could be mirrored
