Special tlds deliver us from evil
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
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
