I'm not so sure.

Sure there's probably some nice gems in there, but it is littered with BS symbols and blatant TM's. I lost count how many times i saw domains starting with "Yahoo.."

they also have piss poor portfolio management, I just run a bulk check for fun, and a lot of the names they hold in .net only, is free in .com. sure some of these will be down to character variants - but not all.

I imagine the .com dropped after they regged the .net, but if you are going to sit on a .net and renew it every year, then have the commonsense to check if the .coms have become free. These sorts of things, you can do with a bulk checker in seconds.

i give it a thumbs down
