How come Jesse’s personal domain appears here?

One of the ways an RT instance references its own tickets is the
fsck.com-rt:// URI. According to Jesse:

At the time it was built, the emerging standard
for “Vendor” URI schemes was to prefix them with the vendor’s domain
name, so you didn’t conflict with anyone else’s URI schemes.

At that time, this meant fsck.com. Since there are now extensions and
other third-party code which rely on this behavior, it’s hard to
change.

Jesse -

Someone asked about this on rt-users. Since I knew (having just been
poking around with URI stuff), I wrote this up, but wanted to
double-check that it was accurate, since I’m talking second-hand about
stuff that happened way before this summer. Let me know if I’m wrong
about anything.

One of the ways an RT instance references its own tickets is the
fsck.com-rt:// URI. ‘fsck.com’ was used to make the URI unique to RT,
and since there are extensions now which rely on it, it can’t really
be changed to, say, bestpractical.com-rt://.
