    way too expensive for us as blackhatters.., but if you have the money you could register some (possible) popular future domains and make money with it

    Eww! I like only having .com/.net/.info/.cm, etc TLD's. I do NOT want to start seeing baba.food or bala.boston. :(

    There will be a way for us BHatters to make money off of this. I already have a few ideas and Im sure others will too.

    I think this was originally proposed as a way to come up with tlds for adult sites such as .xxx I wonder if it'll make it more difficult to rank a .com in an adult niche

    I mean, I knew this was coming, but I have a feeling it is going to get out of hand. For $185k, every big business is going to have one, every decent sized city, every spoiled whore (imricherthenyou.parishilton) on the planet is going to have one.

    I would rather they just knocked this idea back for a few years and give us .XXX
