> Score one for PIR!

Actual registry prices:

Verisign .com: $7.85
Neustar .biz: $7.85 ($4 promotion)
PIR/Afilias .org: $7.70
Afilias .info: $7.42 ($3 promotion)
Afilias .mobi: $7.25 ($4 promotion)
Verisign .net: $5.86

The promotion prices are temporary and usually limited to new 
registrations, although .info has been on sale more or less continuously 
for years.

As you can see, PIR's pricing is right in line with everyone else, and 
considerably higher than Verisign's .net.

I agree with Evan that the world would be a better place if there were 
more friction in domain registrations and people used them as identifiers 
rather than as fashion accessories, but that horse left the barn in the 
previous millenium.
