    Rewarded for what?

    - spoiling a system that worked well
    - increasing costs and confusion to existing customers
    - making many businesses have to reg two domains instead of one

    yes they'll be value attaching to many of the new .uk domains - but it is only money sucked out of the .co.uk market.

    Well it was working at nominet or serving fries with your burger. Amazing how far a few friends can get you.

    After a £60K payrise in 2014, he must've been gutted when he opened his pay packet to find a paltry £6K increase in 2015. Nevermind, the extra £71K in 2016 made up for it.

    Seems like the NED needs to have a word - their salary hasn't gone up in line with their peers.

    Yeah but they only do one month's work for that. Can't understand why people would want that job.....
