Subject: It's not the same and you know it..


        A better analogy is that we don't need 15 streets called "Main" or "Broadway" etc. etc., because that does nothing but confuse and devalue the concept of a street name.

Domain extensions are not burger joints, newspapers or radio stations they are LOCATION pointers pure and simple. They are meant for one and only one reason and that is TO HELP THE PUBLIC NAVIGATE TO A DESTINATION ON THE INTERNET...

An extension should be descriptive, clear, universal (as much as possible) and not confusingly similar to any other..

With regards to who or what is managing the naming domain space, that is a completely seperate issue and creating new extensions is neither the solution nor the answer..
