i've always wanted to have a reason to add some top-level domains to my
spam filters but until now, issues of practicality have restricted me to
just second- and lower level domains.

anyway, this change just reflects the political reality of the modern
world - corporations are far more important than old-fashioned entities
like countries so it's natural for them to have their own TLDs. really,
Tuvalu has their own TLD but Nike or Microsoft don't? ridiculous...they
could buy Tuvala out of petty cash if they wanted to.
