Subject: two points - one from the ICANN Watch article on DomeBase's


list, and the second from your post Gregory.

First, I don't believe that the best .info domains are all tied up in the 10,000 ineligible names registered by the DumbArse registry Afilias Ltd. in the .info Sunrise.

Secondly, or really the same point, because most people are still in .com, .net and .org mode of thinking, there are still great .info domains available.  .info is a new beast with a new application and many people have yet to discover its diversity of uses. I registered another one this morning that I have been thinking over for a week and will probably register two more this evening that will fit into my my plans for a vertically integrated group of sites.

I have seen no evidence to indicate that Afilias Ltd. has changed and has started to make a positive contribution to the popularisation of the .info extension. 

As many currently think, I believe that it will be up to us to make .info the first choice of internet users seeking first class information.

Good luck Landrushers.
