I agree it is artificial to a degree but not solely due to the wholesale
price.  There are a number of factors which I take into consideration, I have
provided free hostnames to over 250,000 users at no cost to them so I have a
fairly good understanding of what is involved.  There are a great many reasons
why the wholesale price is what it is and why the retail price has been and
what it is now.  We would appear to have slightly different ideas on how those
factors affect things and what is important and what is not.

We are no where near .com levels nor do I want to see us branded the same as
that namespace.

Willing to pay for the branding but not the over inflated price that some
gougers tried to get out of the market.  I'm very comfortable with the current
pricing and even if it was a little higher I'd not have a problem with buying
into the namespace where I see some personal value in doing so.

You equate profit with value as you see fit, that doesn't meet the facts
