[ NNSquad ] Re: Schools buying .xxx domains for "protection"
We really need a solution to this. Companies and organizations that buy packs of domains for the purpose of anti-squatting which are related to names they own should be able to pay a small one-time administration fee for the entire pack of domain names. They shouldn't be forced to pay large sums of money annually for each permutation of the name.
