The "usual BS" of new gTLD launches includes

  1. Early "reports" of a few Big$$$ sales . . about which I will have serious doubts about the bona fides of the "sale" OR the intelligence of the purported buyers
  2. Reports by various domainers of the new gTLD "scores", though this time I expect a good deal of caveats and "Hey, I'm really not into this but . . "
  3. Endless shilling for each new gTLD - as far as it will be tolerated
  4. Newly acquired gems put up for sale . . with NO takers

What exciting non-news am I missing about this massive non-event of the launch of 100s of new gTLDs. . besides the speculation about how Google's decision to enter the domain space will play out?
