It might be just a fluke, but Microsoft Messenger is blocking .info sites from appearing when users send messages back and forth . More on this story here.

I just verified it, and indeed this is the case. I remember that back in the day when .INFO was made available a lot of applications (including one of the websites I operated) were only accepting a TLD as valid with up to 3 letters… But now there’s also .travel, .museum etc.

Maybe there were too many scammers/phishers using the .info TLD?
