    ... here comes WLS, steamrolling to a registrar near you!

    Yes, Read 'em and weep ... say "adios" to all the wizards, magicians, auctioneers, snappers, drop-catchers, and drop-catching script specialists who charge 70 bucks and up for only a CHANCE to get a name, or hoard lots of them for ppc schemes, if and when that name expires and drops.

    Yeah, too bad Snapnames had to be one of the major winners in all this, but at least they know how to deal with the process.

    Later, I've got lists to make.

    This was probably the least informed post i have ever seen...no wonder it was anonymous.

    Please name one service - besides Snapnames - that charges whether or not you get the name - ....theres only one other and at least they only charge $12 instead of snapnames $45-60.

    ahh.. ohh. aaa.

    Thats right, every market driven solution charges only on succees..only the icann granted monopolies restrict competition....and thats what we have.

    A free marketplace policies itself...a franchise granted marketplace enriches one stakeholder.

    LOL... good luck beating the "wizards, magicians, auctioneers, snappers, drop-catchers, and drop-catching script specialists" to the WLS.

    LOL... good luck. The "wizards, magicians, auctioneers, snappers, drop-catchers, and drop-catching script specialists" made their WLS lists long before you'll ever get in line.

    Oh, that's right, I forgot. A magic force field is going to prevent them from snapping up all the good WLS subscriptions en masse the day that WLS is made available.

    Just like it did for all the .info names.

    "WLS has two target markets. The first comprises those who trade in domain name registrations
    as their primary business."

    Any questions?
