That's a lot of if's. Don't you think it would have been a good idea to
do some research before rushing off to promote your vanity TLD?
As far as I can tell, people in Catalonia think that .CAT is swell, but
its effect is minimal. When I was in Barcelona for MAAWG last year, I saw
a mix of .cat, .es, and .com domains in signs and ads.
