Many e-mail addresses in Wonderland end with (dot)com(dot)bh ...and many people don't seem to grasp this simple fact. It annoys me everytime I have to tell someone my email address over the telephone.

"But I send you e-mail.. why u no get?" they scream on the phone.
"Which address did u send it to? I still don't have it" I reply.

"Oh damn Batelco" says the angry caller.
"Do whatever you want" says me.

"But I send u email" says angry caller.
"But I no get email" says me.

"I send u email to *****@*****.com" says angry caller.
"U should send it to *****@*****" I reply.

"Oh..I see.. I see.. I understand.. dot come dot Bee dot Heaych like in HOTEL"
" bee dot Ayche like in HELL!"

I detestt the bit, I have suggested to Batelco before to drop the .com completely from their addresses and just use .bh. Thankfully some domains started to do that and I think this is due to the new Internet Exchange.

What batelco now must do is allows its sites to be access without that stupid www in front of the url, it is completely irrelevent now.

i got used to typing in the domain by itself without the www, that is, but everytime i try it for sites, batelco takes me to their inet mail server site. boohoo...
