"If ICANN would be really so dump and would introduce another .shop version it wouldn't be that bad for New.net. Think of the additional exposore for the .shop TLD. New.net .shop domain owners would get ca. 15-20% of the traffic of the ICANN .shop Domain... and if you have good ones... As a result this would drive more traffic to New.nets .shop domain than present."

Except now isn't new.net supposedly getting 100 percent of the .shop traffic?

Thanks for the reply.  You would appear to suggest that a strongly-rooted alternate TLD would be off-limits to ICANN.  Dot-biz showed that wasn't so, although I can't attest to its original 'strength'.

If what you are saying is true, then ARNI should be experiencing a 15-20 percent increase in traffic, what with the increased ICANN .biz visibility and all.

I don't really know why I am involved in this thread.  I guess the original question piqued my interest...
