- I would say delete. Specialist terminology of the same kind as terms defined in legal documents, but in this case defined by some Internet power. Equinox ◑ 20:42, 15 August 2010 (UTC)
How is a gTLD different from a top-level domain?DAVilla 05:21, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
- Oh, it's not a country code. Doesn't seem obvious to me. Definitely a bit technical but that doesn't mean we shouldn't keep it. DAVilla 05:31, 10 September 2010 (UTC)
- We don't have this sense of generic. If it exists, then I guess it's "Not specific to a country or region"? (It doesn't merely mean "Not specific", as gTLDs can be specific to a type of institution, for example.) There are three hits at , none on Usenet.—msh210℠ (talk) 18:42, 13 September 2010 (UTC)
- keep as a reference point for any non nerd, you really have to know a whole lot about technology to even be in the know about domains in the first place.
- Or about biology, or chemistry, or... This is clear sum of parts. Maybe you need to be a nerd to know top-level domain, but that doesn't make this entry worthwhile (with generic appended). Likewise, maybe the man in the street doesn't know what an alkylated benzene is, but he should know to look up alkylated and benzene. Equinox ◑ 22:15, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
