  1. Let me know when they disconnect their DOTCOM version. LOL

    They never will.

    But this is the PROPER way to use a .Whatever extension from not being .Temporary.
    You MUST have the dotcom counterpart. Then brand away. Simple!
    Without it, huge traffic leaks.
    Maybe one day they will share the data.
    But the bottom line, the majority will go to the dotcom for many years to come.

    Yes, I agree with Rick that this is the proper way to use an alternate extension. Own the .com and do .whatever.
