Anyone know what these are for?

There are at least 90,000 domains matching the PCRE regular expression:


That is, with optional hyphens, a concatenation of one word from each of the below:

	1. awesome|amazing|immense|fabulous|super|great|excellent|wonderfull|marvelous|good|best|vast|incrediable|rad
	2. info|scoop|facts|wisdom|insight|knowledge
	3. to
	4. possess|retain|enjoy|own|keep|save|have|store|grasp|carry|cache|amass
	5. going|rolling|pushing|flowing|driving|running|rushing|bustling|moving
	6. ahead|forth|forward|onward

Anyone know why the registrant might be doing this?

If every possible combination were registered, it would be a total of
(14 x 6 x 12 x 9 x 4 x 2^5) = 1,161,216 domains.  I've only run across
~90k, but that could just be lack of effort to try them all.
