Stupid domain tricks

I wondered what other animal TLDs exist besides .horse: Only .fish! Not even .gopher!

But reading through the list, I see that .bar exists, and some domain-squatting company in Mexico has registered -- well played, señor -- though it doesn't point anywhere -- boo.

I'm somewhat offended that Google has squatted .foo for themselves. They have some dumb thing at I'll bet they're pissed that someone snagged before them. <nelson>Ha ha.</nelson>.

But I am really happy to report that the guy who, back in 1994, had control of the email address has it back again! For some time there, this important relic of history was lost to us.

Speaking of .bar, there's .beer and .vodka but no other boozes.

I actually laughed out loud when I saw that the purpose of .ninja is "general expertise". Then I realized they didn't mean actual ninjas and general expertise in ninja-ing, they really just mean douchebags, and then I got really sad.

Nobody has registered or

.wang exists, but not .boobies or .poop or .💩, which I think would be spelled .xn--ls8h. See also Poopla, 💩.la. And though .la is maybe not what you think, .nyc is, but there is no .sf.

Even though this proliferation of TLDs is completely stupid, I'm glad that .fail exists, just so that I can point out that does not exist but should.

Why the long face? Retailer says domain infringes its IP

Your use of a Domain Name that incorporates the famous Walmart mark constitutes trademark infringement and dilution of Walmart''s trademark rights and unfair competition. Your use of our mark in the Domain Name is diluting use because it weakens the ability of the Walmart mark and domain name to identify a single source, namely Walmart. Further, your registration and use of the Domain Name misleads consumers into believing that some association exists between Walmart and you, which tarnishes the goodwill and reputation of Walmart's products, services, and trademarks.
