One of the reasons those "self-appointed folks" tend to be as prescient 
as they are is that they don't speculate, per least in the case 
of Lance Venta at, he only puts an item up when there's 
actually a domain registration to report.

As of 10:00 this morning, nobody has registered 
mia101.7com...or Anyone who has 13 bucks to spare (which rules me out at 
the moment, alas) could register any of those names and start the wheel 
of speculation spinning. But for now, there's simply no red meat out 
there for anyone to start chewing on, which I guess leaves us 
speculating on the lack of speculation.
