I'm wondering if now might be a good time
 to scan and map out ALL domains in .com.
Up to 50 letters long.

Pick a random string, resolve and lightly scan it,
 not enough to send byte counts crazy,
 or annoy an ISP or any real recipient.
Sleep lightly, pick another, scan again.

We could call it the
 "Search for Intra Terrestrial Acceptance of Responsibility".
 and the aim would be to map names to services available.
Would such an worthy endeavour even engender legal liability?

It would have to be a shared effort
 but even if it was quite widespread,
 the only people who would be inconvenienced
 would be people with disproportionate representation
 in string-space....
