    If you follow Mike Mann on Twitter, you'll notice that he has revealed some impressive sales figures recently. His sales include for $30,000, for $18,000 and for $9,888. Due to Mike's substantial portfolio, he needs to continually close sales of this size. However, these are incredible sales prices for domains that many of us would have sold for much less.

    Here's this week's Top Topics.

    This Domain's Previous Owner Contacted Me

    Just days after acquiring an expired domain, this investor was contacted by the name's previous owner, who asked to buy back the domain.

    Based on an email from the previous owner, it seems they were unable to renew the domain and has asked the investor to sell them the domain back for a nominal fee.

    What would you do in this situation?

    Would You Read a Domainer Magazine?

    In the digital world of domain names, you may think that an old fashioned physical magazine may be obsolete. You may be right, but in this discussion, an investor has asked whether anyone would read a domaining magazine.

    Interestingly, it seems that a domaining magazine has already been in circulation some years ago. An old copy of Modern Domainer was shared by @Doron Vermaat.
