    Ha ha ha! You're so anxious to piss away some more money ... ha ha ha! Hey, here's a clue - There's a good reason loads of great names will be dropping at New.net: They couldn't even be sold for cost. Ha ha ha! You want to renew? Ha ha ha!
    Muahahahahahahahaaaa ...

    Unlike Verisign, New.Net is unlikely to be able to sell off its domain name registry business to Microsoft in order to raise cash.

    In the very first place, there is not hope for the new.net domain name. I am saying here that even if verisign and register.com could not count on the registration as its sole business. They need to do some other business to support the registration. I also wonder why so big a company can not develop some killer technology and place itself in a significant place in the technology kindom. I guess the CEO et al got too much already. Register.com will also suffer. Jusy wait to watch.

    Geez, talk about throwing good money after bad.

    (Does anyone really support New.net at this point, other than people who registered fake domain names with New.Net and think that this should give them a superior right to register corresponding names in the real domain name space, if and when ICANN removes its Lynn from its Sims and approves more new TLDs?)

    Can you say "sinking ship"? Sure, I knew you could.

    The party's over at New.net. After the first 6 months you could tell it was doomed.

    They haven't yet dropped any expired names, and lots of names expired on March 5.

    If they drop all the expired names, everyone will see how many customers lost faith.

    New.net had it's 15 minutes of fame. Now they are only famous for the assholes who "moderate" the New.net message board.
