- Reaction score

Real choice means less dependency on .COM, in the past there was really no choice;
Now, what say you if we substitute lust.com with lust.xxx? Like never before in Internet history, we are now at the watershed and crossroads of alternative addressing choices;
Every single one of the above are qualified extensions (and covering massive industries and continents) - which means not every tom, dick and his dog will be able to register them like the aging and squatter ravaged .COM namespace.
Once the search engines start attributing increased relevance weightages to these extensions, like they already do for ccTLD local search, lets see how developers react to that.
It doesn't matter whether anyone is right or wrong, but let us not put our heads in the sand and act stupid to growing trends.
1. Sony Walkman --again, a few exceptions don't disprove a general rule.
2. The above new extensions you cite haven't been proven yet. The fact that there are so many choices (AKA: competition, or even confusion) may devalue some or all of them.
