dot lol is a 185K waste of money.
As a Google shareholder, it does not make me laugh at all.

the dot docs at least makes a little sense with branding, but is still lame.

According to Ad Age (via DomainIncite), Google has applied for more than 50 gTLDs.

So,
Google: more than 50.
Verisign: about 12.

Frankly, I think after the last couple of weeks we should be publicly making the case that Google is an unfit organisation to run a registry.

Sure, I have no objection to the owning .Google, but strongly feel it against the public interest for them to be extending their control over the Internet when they exercise that power in such an arbituary self-serving manner.
