While I absolutely understand the appeal of a free domain (especially with the cost of everything going up nowadays), I would caution people from taking domains from other countries if it makes it difficult for those countries to access their own domains because those of us who don’t live there have taken them especially if they’re common like, I don’t know, government.tk or something. We have to remember how the ways in which we consume tech (and the digital world) affect others.

Chances are that the common names are already registered, so i don't think this is something that concerns the countries providing these domains.

Yea that’s a fair point and a definite possibility
