and well the rest of CircleID.

Some people are going to get very rich over this. I hope that they drown 
in the money just as the Internet will drown in all the crap TLD's, not 
even thinking of all the nice security issues which come along (home, 
mycomputer and .exe etc anyone ? :) And of course the people who like to 
grab typos will also have a field day with this.

Thank you people doing all the ICANN politics for destroying the Internet.

Greets,
