Hence forth, the meaning of the tld '.com' has been changed.  It now 
stands for "communist".  Run!  Hide your yourselves from this tld or your
customers will comment on you behind your back, your children will turn 
you in, the government will launch DoS attacks on your network, no one 
will trust your SSL certs, and no one but Castro will do business with you!

Wow, look at all those .com domains available. :-)
