Subject: Spot almost spot on ...


".web just doesn't do anything that .net doesn't, and it sounds worse too."

Spot on!

"Plus of the gtld domains, .net is nearly defunct- Internet services companies virtually all trade under .com."

Dot-net is not defunct.  Many companies use it instead of dot-com.

"I agree that .biz gives the impression of .hardsell . The only appropriate kind of business I can immediately think of where it would be appropriate is domains- pure no-messing about purchasing."

Dot-biz could be appropriate for other sales websites and business-to-business websites, and some consumer websites [like or].  However, most dot-biz websites will sound like dot-sleaze [like get-rich-quick infomercials and slick snake oil sales].
