    I think the diversity in TLDs is great, truly reflects human nature. NameSlinger has provided a way to give customers truly a name they want.....in a responsible manner! They have zero'd in on the collider problem in true visionary style!

    And to those who say TLDs should be limited.....Why don't they do this with phone numbers or 1-800 numbers....Is it because of a shortage? or because people natuarally want choice!!! Believe it or not, its because people want choice!!! There are plenty of dot coms left, but I for one think a dot com or even a dot shop is limiting in every sense of the word.

    All I can say, is it will be great, when the rest of the population finally gets it! As usual they will be a day late, and a dollar short!!

    to Marketers: Jump on board! See what all the "buzz" is about....It's definitely not about the fact you are limited!!! On NameSlinger™ you are only limited by how far you can stretch your advertising mind!

    I stand by what I say

    User #2940 Info
    NameSlinger™ is visionary as far as the Alternate Roots go. They have acted in a responsible manner so as not to collide with existing TLDs in the alternate domain space. Unlike New.net....

    Now if you are trying to draw a parallel about my support for NameSlinger™ and Image Online Design you can't. They are two different companies headed in two different directions. One will be a leader of the alternate roots, and the other a leader in the USG roots. No one said, that you can't have an alternate root. In fact Stuart Lynn even suggested that experimental roots are needed.

    Isn't nameslinger an experiment, non-colliding, non threatening entity (especially when they are not colliding with anyone).....

    SO thanks for slinging up my post. I stand by it, and the ones I post in support of Image Online Design.
