    It's a straightforward attack from this blog post. It's the Verisign official blog so it can be taken as a straightforward attack from Verisign. Amusing as they seek premium prices for dot-tv domains as you correctly reminded us.

    Personally, if I was Verisign, I would not rock the boat with the dot-com monopoly they have, risk angering Godaddy, blog posts about the SiteFinders.com debacle (remember that?) etc.

    Most individuals looking to buy a domain are not interested in spending much more than $50 on a domain -so when their ideal domain is taken and listed for sale at $xXxX they just select another domain with an extra word or a hyphen or abbreviation etc. So the existence of domain investors results in millions and millions of additional registrations which would not exist otherwise. Who benefits from the renewals of maybe 30 million .Com and .net aftermarket registrations?
