Why bother?

ICANN has sold a lot of new domains but I have yet to see anything other than vanity use. If there's a real use for them I have yet to see it - I think he should count himself lucky to have gotten his money back and go and find some better investment.

I'd admit that I do find some of the new domains useful - it makes blocking them at the mail server so much easier, I can just add "blacklist_from *.accountant" and "blacklist_from *.click" to get rid of each one. This reduces the spam load quite nicely.
