    I was doing some research and found an interesting update.

    Just a few short years ago, back in June of 2015, the domain autism .rocks was sold for $100,000! It was one of only 4 sales ever reported by namebio for this extension.

    Well, fast forward to today, I just read that that buyer, Sanjay Shah, as originally reported by Domain Name Wire here , turned out to be a tax fraud and has just had all his assets seized.

    The autism rocks centre has also been closed.

    That's too bad. Not for the fraudster, but for those affected by autism. I remember hearing how the domain was to be used as a portal for autism or as an asset helping the community. It was a heart warming story, or purchase, to say the least.

    Interesting. Estibot today values .com @ $593K, .org @ $16K, .rocks @ $200. Sounds like some kind of tax fraud to me :) Or a really bad investment in .rocks @ $100K. I'd say definitely a tax fraud which has been discovered :) Rich people are entitled to spend their wealth however they want. But if it is illegal. they should go to jail. Just like everyone else.

    I thought domain perhaps sounded offensive but only because everything offends others these days.
