Absolutely not. The InterNIC has no interest
in the content of a site UNLESS it's .org or
.gov in which case you have to be a registered
non-profit organisation or a government respectively.

>But - is there a waiting list for names?

The only waiting involved is the time it takes
the InterNIC to register you. The name is either
available or it's taken. You can find out for
yourself easily:

Can't see any dirty tricks in this thread.
