  1. .gay is a ghetto to put us in

    Whatever… Like most ghettos we’ll move in and make it fabulous and raise the profile, clean it up and increase the property values.

  3. Now THAT’S positive thinking, Zack!

  4. Not only will it potentially be a ghetto, it will also be exceptionally easy for filtering software such as NetNanny to block.

    Also it will place additional costs on LGBT-oriented businesses who have a well-known web address under .org, .com or similar national domains, and who will need to buy a .gay domain to prevent a cybersquatter getting it.

    So true on the filtering software, but please NO-ONE take from us if they do become successful.

  6. By this stage most new TLDs are fraudulent enterprises, and dot gay will be the same.

    Look at what happened to dot-eu. Non-European domain farmers bought thousands of names then hoarded them. EurID still has no idea how many .eu names are being used for legitimate purposes.

    Creating dot-gay will give a few people some jobs administering a resource conjured out of thin air, give a lot of lawyers money as they squabble over rights, and generally lead to a lot of ill feeling.
