Special tlds deliver us from evil
  [vote for,

We can't easily get rid of internet-abuse, like spamming, domain squatting, linkfarms, etc. So in the good Dutch tradition of legalisation, to give the idea of control (and at least be able to taxe it), I propose to create special TLDs for people who absolutely insist on sending unsolicited email, registering all potentially interesting domainnames or spam your searchresults with nonsensical link farms. I suggest the following:

.sp for all kinds of spammers .sq for domain squatters .lf for link farms

Any suggestions for additions?

       What is a TLD? How about expanding these acronyms, people.

       Three-letter domain, like .com or .net.   

       What's the spammer's motivation for taking a domain name that clearly labels them as a spammer? How is it enforcible?

       Ah, you mean "top" level domain.

       Much better to have a top level domain for evil geniuses
