Why I'm against non-Latin lettwrs in website addresses... [Nov. 1st, 2009|08:31 am]

The internet regulator has approved plans to allow non-Latin-script web addresses.

Why am I against this?
Well, consider PayPal.com - there's MANY non-Latin letters that look like their Latin counterparts. Phishing scams will surge because it will look like the legitimate site in your address bar - but won't, and we'll get a ton of silly names like www.╰▄━━▄╯.com (Yeah, that's non-latin "letters".)

Either this is the biggest, most tasteless, viral campaign ever ... or really, really, scary.
