    "ive been going onto np for about 10 years and it has slowed down bigtime. the traffic is very low now and the simple basic comments of so called domainers has been watered down by alot of useless and irrelevant data. alot of people on np do not have a clue about a many topics and not alot of research is done into subject matter prior to regging domains. in short too many people on the site r not very savvy with limited intelligence and life experience it seems

    for example one guy in a post thought the word Nike was pronounce bike and had no clue that the name derived from the greek goddess for victory hence they used nike for a sports company. His comeback that he said was who would know that factoid was his response.

    well there u have it. brain dead snowflakes with limited intellect and any interest about the past present or future. thats why u see all kinds of crap domains.

    but it has its positives"

    Don, the commenter, ironic as it is, is referring to an off-topic subset of the currently trending 5G is not 4G thread.

    It's unfortunate that Don the commenter misinterpreted my words to the extent of "one guy in a post thought the word Nike was pronounce bike" as I clearly asked, Why isn't Nike pronounced similar to Bike?

    Only asking to demonstrate Nike's branding power. In that, most people probably learn how to pronounce Nike as Ni-Key due to the shoe companies branding, before they learn about the Greek goddess Νίκη (Nee-keh).

    More unfortunate, is that Don uses this example to justify his opinion of nP that "many people on the site r not very savvy with limited intelligence and life experience it seems".


    Have a good day everyone.

    And remember we, the people of the internet, come from all different geographics, diverse with all this of cultural and linguistic norms. What's normal phonetics to you, may not be normal to somebody on the other side of the pond.
