<<<< The problem with .web is that it is another .com, a free-for-all. People will rush to register names with .web the same as they
do with .com, in fact in many cases the owners of will

You contradict yourself. In a free-for-all, people will be grabbing
at what they can. Consequently, it is statistically improbable that
.web generics would simply, and conveniently, get into the hands
of current .com owners.


Is the only one who will try to get River.web? How about a
million other people for whom that SLD would be ideal.

<<<< If .web is to mean anything it should be restricted to web design
companies! >>>>>

You're kidding, right?

Since when did "web" refer merely to web design? "web" is for Worldwide Web, which is far more than web design.

I nearly gagged on my Chinese food when I read that statement.

Thanks for the laugh, though.
