The ICWP letter also says that the four gTLDs .win, .loan, .top, and .link were used by over three quarters of abusive domains over the SADAG study period.

I don't much care about .loan or .link but the .top gTLD has so much potential.

Such a shame there is so much abuse going on at that organization.

I would never use a China-based TLD, thus subject to Chinese laws. Too risky.

Exactly, they could delete / took back / obscure / resell your domain when they want, whitout a trustable reason and without any communication.

Happened to me.

Agreed on that for sure, but

Happened to me.

Or someone in China could want your domain and offer you a sweet buyout.

To develop a site.... maybe not

To invest in the right one for resale .... why not (y)

I have experience with a few hundreds .TOP domains...
No issues except 1 Adult domain where serverHold status was set... After my request to AlpNames and their communication with Registry - this domain was reactivated and works...

p.s. 1 .TOP I sold for $850 (Russian keyword).

Wow, a few hundred..... hats off to you

There are sooo many great ways to use .top, so unfortunate it is not more useable at the moment.

Maybe @DOMAIN ILLUMINATI (king of top) was on to something
