    Thank you James!

    Do you have any idea about the price Shane paid for Uncomfortable?
    On another note, imo is a win/win for both parties. (If true).
    Wish i had those funds, would've bought it, had some great ideas for that!

    Thanks for this new great job as usual.

    It seems you mean to say "Ali Zandi purchased the plural two-word domain"
  8. Thanks, fixed.

    I doubt Shane will reveal the details. He did reveal his motivation for buying the name in a blog post a week or two ago though
