Yup, copy and paste that into your browser and it will resolve.
For now, it just redirects to a Wikipedia article. If you can think of a better use for it, please let me know. I wonder how mail clients do at sending emails to it?
Interestingly, Chrome sometimes throws up a warning that this is a "Fake Site" saying "Attackers sometimes mimic sites by making small, hard-to-see changes to the URL." I suspect that's because of the mixture of English characters and symbols.
I was inspired by the (slightly weird) http://↓.tk website.
