Now that GTLD's have been around and the shine has worn off, let's see where we are at.
So, there was a lot of excitement and BS about the new Gtld's. But let's make a comparison.
Imagine you are attracted to someone of the opposite sex. You've had a crush on them for a while. You really want to go out with them. You feel like you are in love. Finally it happens and you go out.
First they take you to a dirty and crummy second class restaurant but you overlook that. Your date is not dressed well but you overlook that. He has a shiny new car but it does not run well, it is very uncomfortable and has no A/C. But you even overlook that.
You finally get to a private and comfortable spot and then you find out they have STINKY FEET! That does it! Date is over. Crush is gone and back to the drawing board!
Many domainers fell in love and dated GTLD's with VERY STINKY FEET!!! LOL
