.io domains 

Someone On Here pointed this out, but i can't find the post, so I'll try my best to bring out the key points. My apologies for lack of attribution

.io is the TLD for the British Indian Ocean Territories

The UK forcibly expelled the Chagos Islanders from their islands in order to build a military base for the US. The British claim the islands as part of the British Indian Ocean Territories

Courts have been ruling for decades that the UK must allow Chagos Islanders to return to their land, including UK courts, but the British government, to this day, refuses

.io domains are problematic because they are an endorsement of the situation, and the BIOT administration financially benefits from the purchase of them

So it turns out Gog are cowards on top of everything else.
