Are domains such as .xyz used for anything legitimate?

That domain and other newish ones seem to be exclusively used by spammers. I have added them to my spam filter, of course. One that recently generated a torrent of spam was .us, which you’d think might have some legitimate users. .site also turned up as a spam source recently. It’s hard to imagine that anyone would now want some of those domains for legitimate purposes.

[abc.xyz] belongs to Alphabet, the parent company of Google.

First you have to decide if you want to surf the internet using Cartesian coordinates or Polar coordinates. If you use Cartesian, then please do not block .xyz websites.

Not hard to adopt radians on a roughly spherical surface (the earth) if you need to drop the Cartesian system and continue to rely upon 3 coordinates for establishing your location. Degrees convert easily to radians away from the poles. (If you're Santa Claus, the Cartesian system is still highly recommended.)
