    Just went to check out domains. Found an excellent name and
    thought I could spare a couple of bucks to buy it...and flick it.

    Turns out .cm is a premium price......$104.99 :eek:

    How are they justifying this? Surely there can't be that many
    misspelt URL's...or so I thought.

    According to wikipedia, every .cm variation is monetized.

    Thanks, didn't think to check there (don't trust wiki anymore so not first thought).

    For some reason I thought .cm was a new delvelopment.
