Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
The domain name contains the keyphrase and the landing page is a canned set of pages provided by one of the ever-growing number of "monetize your domain name" service - ads, ads and nothing but ads (but formatted to look like a "real" site, at first glance, complete with navigation to "related" pages of ads, ads, ads).
I'm familiar with most of those parking services, so I recognized it immediately - a "whois" verified my suspicions.
There's an email link on the landing page - it goes to a page about fighting spam. No actual contact info (that I could find) anywhere on the site.
It's not just ad either - there are at least 2 on this keyword (different but similar domain names, different whois info, different parking sites - possibly the same person though).

I don't personally use these 2 services - they're fairly new, may be more lax about their terms?
Thanks for the contact info - I think I'll drop the Adwords folks a little note.
They are, BUT I have a number of parked domains in addition to my developed sites, and I can tell you that the parking services I use (most of which are monetized by Google) are VERY strict about only allowing "natural" traffic to your parked domains - i.e. direct navigation ("type-ins"). You will get thrown out of the programs if you are caught doing anything which could be interpreted as driving traffic to your page(s).
There's a LOT more discussion about this practice within this forum if you do a search for "Adwords for Domains" and you'll discover that many advertisers have found themselves competing with sites like this when bidding for keywords within AdWords. That's something unpleasant to chew on.
