I take a reactionary position on the .ly thing: I object to using .ly domains because it’s TLD abuse. (Unless you actually are Libyan, of course.) If you live in the US and want to use a country-based TLD, then you should use .us, says I. And the relevant RFCs.

For that matter I object, in a ritual fashion because this cause was lost long ago, to the use of .com domains by anyone who isn’t actually a commercial enterprise.

Also, those damn kids should get off my lawn. I shake my cane at you, damn kids!
