    They shouldn't be pushing .UK names because you don't like a specific domain that has been registered?

    That's barmy :confused:

    I was referring to the 'HarrysRolyPolys' part, not the extension.

    A bit late to the show, but as an outsider my vote is with the dot UK.

    Any attachment to co.uk is purely sentimental, noting more which will pass with time.

    It is an easy choice for an outside organization looking to buy a better presence in the UK market.

    I just sold a .UK. w00dpeckers in .uk

    O's instead of zeros... but glad that a small company has bought it.

    This is all good.

    I guess we should add polls.uk also given the traffic it will have had in the last couple of weeks.

    Glastonbury.co.uk is a local directory website and not the festival which would be much more impressive. They all help ;)

    We should still look at what we have here, the NHS and Government are now using .uk for most of their services. That's a big move.

    They've always used .UK domains and did before .UK domains were available to purchase.

    Yeah, that's true, but even still. It encourages people to move to .uk I would imagine. Seeing the government using it ...

    I've been seeing more and more .UK names on the sides of trucks/vans since the ROR

    Yup. If they choose .UK over .CO.UK that might be a good sign for .UK
