Gregory,

Sorry to have disappointed you... but yes, I guess the sampling is biased and I am aware that even if opinions are not scientific, they do help make policy.

The interesting point is what is behind "The .web data is a bit abnormal... there are over 11'000 votes but just 44 domains? Can you explain this?"

If I understand correctly, everybody wants .web but no-one actually reserves a name with name-space.

I love statistics... you can make them say exactly what you want!!!

You say
>The word "shop" is unique to the English Speaking countries, >whereas "web" is clearly known world-wide...

Not quite. Most Europeans I know will go 'shopping' whatever language they speak. I am sure the word 'shop' is much better known than the word 'web' - which, by the way, is difficalt to pronounce in French.

Best regards,
