Although I happen to agree with you on this, others have presented some
reasonable arguments to the contrary. This is a matter of opinion, not
fact, and there is no right answer.

Where can you get a free domain name?

Sorry if this offends you, but living in a "trust no-one" society sucks.

Particularly in making comments like the above, one should make that
extra effort to double check spelling and verbage. Furthermore, I don't
I saw anyone yelling at you nor insulting you. (Perhaps I was elsewhere?)
If you cannot handle opposing opinions then perhaps NYC is not the place
for you to live.
