Since my three previous posts [1, 2, 3], I've made over 7 phone calls to the US, alternating between Wild West Domains and NeuStar. And it turned out that, no, I'm not allowed to have a dot-US domain. So I gave it away.

Trusted to bring networks together, beams NeuStar's corporate slogan. After my previous two posts, I'm still hoping that they can be trusted to keep networks together too.

My usage of the BigSmoke.US domain didn't get approved yet. I was hoping for a little advice to come my way by submitting an Ask Slashdot this morning, but the story didn't get past the firehose. After realizing that I should have submitted the story to my /. journal as that would allow Slashdotters to comment without the story having to make it, I just added a journal entry. I want all the exposure and feedback that I can get.

Wether it has something to do with the current Terror Alert level or with a renewed surge of isolationism I don't know, but my foreign ass no longer seems to be welcome below the Dot-US TLD. Never mind that almost all of my visitors are American. Or that my dot-US websites are hosted at US-based NearlyFreeSpeech. Or are my ties to the states sufficient that I just need to deliver the proof?
