Kodo, the key thing to remember is not having a name
you want, but having a name that potential users or customers could find. We
need to face the fact that there is a finite combination of possibilities that people
can easily remember. Remember, a combination of words before the TLD could
accomplish the same thing anyway. For example,
are ALL available at this writing.
Why would YOU want these same four prefixes to be available with another ten possible
endings. That means that your customers would have another 40 ways to make
mistakes in finding you. Having just a few ways to end these names makes plenty
of sense to me. What you propose is to have your (and my) customers remember
your domain out of:
I'm telling you Kodo, adding all these
new TLDs will only serve to confuse and discourage the Internet user community.
We are already at the point of information overload without this confusion.
Just look at how difficult it is to find relevant information now.
If they add
more TLDs, you may be able to get a name you like now, but in a year, two things
will happen, (1). Others will be saying the same thing you are saying now.
"Why is it so unfair?" "Why can't I get the name that kodo has?" (2).
Your customers and end users will be scratching their heads trying to remember what
the name of your site or business is. Come on, lets wake up.
This whole speculation
thing will eventually settle out as it is. Why punish the Internet community
of users so that a few of us can get a domain we want now, when we know that the
same problem will pop up again. I hope and pray that ICANN will come to see
