    How many of these .cn domains do they figure are actually legit? As I’m sure everyone knows, that’s a hugely popular spamming tld

    Honestly, I’m not sure if it is based on website registration through CNNIC or not. There is a requirement that all Chinese websites need to be registered.

    hmmm, nice stats…wish I could have at least 1% of that broadband group become my customers in the near future for the game i’m working on, shoot even .5% would be bigger then most US online games.

    When you get it up and running drop me a line and we will give you some press. We do get a few Chinese who like to stop by now and then.

    I’ve also heard that it was Comrade Lenin’s quote. Either way, it was in reference to having lots of tanks I think.

    I would look it up to be sure but it’s way too early in the morning.
