after less than a year .eu registration finally have results

wikipedia.eu was finaly lost to subject actively hostile to 
Wikimedia, see www.wikipedia.eu. (It's not because they were 
that clever or agressive, but because Wikimedia wasnt much

wikimedia.eu is probably going to be lost as Wikimedia didnt
even applied
