I guess the very passionate critics of the model never really made any error in their own business concepts (if they ever had any). I think it's better when you realise your mistake and correct it than not to have tried at all. It's a lesson. They've moved on. Let's move on too. Punch in my opinion still remains one of the best dailies in Nigeria.

adeg,

You know, when I first noticed that they had 2 domains pointing to the same codebase, I thought the same as you. But then, I got to thinking: maybe one is parked and merely a server redirect to the other. If this were the case, then it makes sense to me. Many other corporations do this. For example, try www.gogle.com and see where it (hopefully smiley) takes you. I even did same for a client last year.

Possible reasons:
1) Users may mistype a url

2) For an SEO campaign, some companies may try different URLs and then track to see which one brings the most traffic

3) Sometimes a site may have had a url for ages but because it isn't one we might remember easily, rather than discontinue the old one, they set up a new, much shorter one and point traffic to the new one.
