And there was me thinking you worked under some guy called Eric ;)
But on a serious note; the .ie domain is a mess alright. It's absurd,
considering that the result has been a pollution of .com instead, as a
stack of Irish companies (with domestic customers and an Irish focus)
register as .coms purely to avoid the hassle involved with a .ie.
And the last thing .com needs is more pollution.
