Yeah.  I thought so too.  For the first ten years.  Now I think it's
not nearly high enough.  Let me give you three examples -- the three
that happen to be occupying my attention at the moment.  I've got more
if you've got the time.  A *lot* more.

	1) http://www.firemountain.net/~rsk/loan.txt
	2) http://www.firemountain.net/~rsk/space.txt
	3) http://www.firemountain.net/~rsk/online.txt

1553, 3794, and 602 domains respectively.  For brevity, I'll spare
you (4) which is a list of 97,657 domains (all in .info) using
variations of the same words, all registered by the same "company".

Note that my collection methods are lossy, so all of these are
drastically UNDERinclusive.
