Bob Parsons: We’ll undo the gTLD injustice against the Marines!

Outspoken GoDaddy founder, Bob Parsons, is very passionate about the US Marine Corps, where he enlisted fresh out of high school.

In 1969, Parsons served as a rifleman in the Delta Company of the 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, during a tour of duty in Vietnam.

The latest launch of the military gTLDs, .Army, .Navy and .AirForce left Parsons in a state of disbelief:

“I can’t believe nobody, and I mean bloody NOBODY, thought of the code and honor of the Marines!” blasted Bob Parsons, during a recent meeting at GoDaddy.

“We have fancy smanshy gTLDs like .XYZ, and every DAMN corps in the military, but no MARINES? This, my friends, is UNACCEPTABLE!” added Parsons, hitting his fist on the table.

Indeed, RightSide appears to have launched every branch of the military, except for dot .Marines, a serious omission in our honest opinion.

Bob Parsons took the matter very personally, and intends to apply for the gTLD once ICANN allows for the next round of gTLDs.

“We use words like “honor”, “code”, “loyalty”. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. Domainers use them as a punchline!” exclaimed Bob Parsons, leaving the meeting.

With his initiative, Bob Parsons intends to restore the injustice against the few, the proud, the Marines.

    Maybe Bob will get the Marines to drop their trademark on the term. That would help his prospects.

    I have pride, but would rather buy a 6 pack than a .Marines domain.

    ‘Rah,

    UNACCEPTABLE indeed. Any idea when they will release the name?

    Thanks
