A lot to deal with here. Firstly I heard on the radio news today that a huge number of domains are already registered but awaiting approval to be used. I'd guess all the major players will want to use this extension.
Secondly, why are all the x's in this thread separated by spaces? The x's in the title of the thread will be tricky to search for without the spaces!
Thirdly, in theory I think the new extension is a good idea. Schools and so on can simply block all x extensions. Of course millions more will still exist. But if you see a link that ends in x's, you can be sure what it's about.
Lastly, weeks wrote "there are no webmasters in that field, are there?". Well there must be if each website needs to be created. So I imagine it is a huge market for webmasters (but one no-one likes to talk about?).
