Backers say restricting the ".post" domain name to postal agencies or groups that provide postal services would instill trust in Web sites using such names. By contrast, popular suffixes such as ".com" and ".org" are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Just wanted to make it clear that this post has nothing to do with my day job at Network Solutions. I just found the news interesting.
