Average daily drops plummeted in December to 35.8 per day.  We were used to seeing regular days with 50-60 NNNNN.com's dropping each day, and now those days are exceedingly rare.   Interestingly, the number of NNNNN.com's dropping appears to now be consistently lower than or equal to the daily drops of LLLL.com's (four letter domains).  Between now and January 1st, for example, 170 five digit domains will drop, while 177 four letter domains will drop.
