    In this week's Top Topics, we feature a debate about the ethics of staying quiet when a newer investor spends thousands of dollars on poor quality domains. Elsewhere, a domainer has shared a list of the five thousand most popular prefixes and suffixes, and someone asks the community for advice on a four-figure offer.

    I Received an Offer for $3,600. Should I Accept?

    An investor has asked the community to make a decision on whether they should accept an offer for a domain name. The domain, with a Somalian .SO extension, received an offer via for $3,600.

After President Trump's very public damning of Twitter, brands may be starting to become nervous about the prospect of closer scrutiny of social media platforms from governments around the world.

    Does this mean a rush to get content away from social media, and back on to domain names where the individual has complete ownership of the content rather than being at the mercy of social media companies?

    Thanks James
