Subject: You Are Missing The Point


      emc2 is missing the point I made in endorsing the .shop idea.  While I realize that will also register a .shop name, what you don't seem to see is that there are a vast number of sites that offer MORE thanjust a place to buy somehting.  If these sites, such as "" or others which offer content and things to sell, register a .shop, and move all of the things to buy to that site, it will create a better way of finding what you want. 

In addition, not all of the 55% that you refer to have goods or services to sell,and therefore they will not all be taking names in the .shop space.  In fact, I heard recently that only about 5% of the sites on the web are used for e-commerce.  This will hopefully grow with a TLD like .shop or the others this company proposed like .svc or .mall.
