I'm referring to this question. It seems like a question with real answers to solve a problem that's only applicable to software developers. The only problems are the "should we?", the "thanks", and the poor tags applied, but if it's not going to get reopened, there's no point in fixing it.
Whether one qualifies for a domain TLD isn't a problem specific to programmers, and doesn't require programmers to answer.
In fact, it's wholly answered by .PRO's eligibility page:
PRO is an exclusive top-level domain reserved for use exclusively by licensed business and service professionals and entities internationally. All applicants meeting the following qualifications may register a .PRO domain name:
- Provides professional services
- Admitted to or licensed by a government certification body or jurisdictional licensing entity recognized by a governmental body that regularly verifies the accuracy of its data
- In good standing with the licensing authority
But beyond whether or not it's connected to the field, what exactly does it have to do with software development? Where's the expertise in going to the .PRO website and clicking on the link that says "Who's Eligible"?
