    Does anybody else laugh when they see some of the prices people are asking for domains? I'm no expert, but seen some right crap on offer lately for xxxx+ Domains, I wouldn't pay x for!

    Is it just me who gets a chuckle out of seeing these?

    So what is the problem? :) If you do not like pricing of some domains, just pass...imo everyone can price their domains as they please..

    I get a laugh out of a specific member that keeps asking for millions and saying he will discount deep, don't be afraid to negotiate. :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

    That's not the issue. The issue is that those people are delusional and wasting their time and hurting their rep.

    If they list garbage names for high prices, that could be for two reasons:

    1) they are waiting for someone stupid enough to buy the name which is fair enough, but pretty much no one with that much money to give is going to be that stupid

    2) they are actually that delusional that they think those names they hand regged are worth that much to end users in which case they need some mentoring and a few slaps to their ego.

    They sure can, and you are more than welcome to laugh at those prices as well.

    I see some people with million dollar + asking prices in threads with endless bumps.
    That is amusing.

    yes I agree, but what about IDNs? Are they useless? Are they a masterpiece? are they common words in another language?

    Its your choice if you get agreed with their proposal. Be careful and evaluate domain pricing from an expert always. Never play blindly.

    I got a warning from our lovely moderator a few months back because I finally posted and asked if the guy had a mental issue or something. I said you keep bumping million dollar domains with an $8 reg fee and you're driving me nuts.

    Amanda gave me proper hell but it was sooooooooooooooo satisfying just to post it once.

    I had to, I could not take it any longer and afterwards I had a strange feeling of calm. :xf.laugh::xf.laugh::xf.laugh:

    Until the big boss arrived to put me in my place :ROFL::ROFL::ROFL:

    I have always had a laugh at sellers of domains.
    This is not a new thing,,,,years back, people with crap domains would list them for millions and actually expected a sale.
    Another laugh is at people who defend these crap domain sellers...hhahahhahaha

    Lol Mapledots, you knew you did little wrong thing, but you still did it - we have some common features I see :)

    But seriously, I hate discouraging or putting down another members (the following remark is general, it is not pointed towards you ) .. it is my observation that if one have a need to criticize or discourage or laught on others, it is usually a sign that one is not satisfied with himself/herself..if you are happy, you like others to be happy as well.

    I would be also very careful to listen "experts" here: for example, I remember year ago or so, there was a member with veeeery long .top domain name, I am sure everyone knows who I am speaking about...he got lot of heat for his passion for .top, and we now learn that this extension sells surprisingly well in China for large amounts of money almost every day (check namebio). I have not read one comment here which would indicate such development, only this member was basically spot on...

    Actually, it hurts the domaining industry. It feeds right into the perception domainers are just looking for their lucky lottery ticket instead of professionals creating real value for potential customers.

    No offence taken but lets discuss...

    Making multiple topics for half baked domains that are not worth more than ten bucks and then repeatedly bumping them, all the while not taking advice from members, deserves to be picked on.

    In fact I remember what I said now
    I asked him if he was a bit touched in the head

    I asked him if he had any idea what a million dollar domain even looked like.

    Unlike your .top scenario which is not a comparable situation because something like one.top could be worth quite a bit but crappy .com's that would not ordinarily sell for a few hundred bucks don't magically become million dollar domains just because one keeps repeatedly bumping them.

    The overpriced domains don’t bother me as much as the many on here trying to buy domains that are worth something, for about nothing. Trying to buy silver or gold for the price of lead.

    I also laugh silently at the ones who push stuff that I wouldn’t take for free on naive NP buyers who pay 50-200 for worthless domains that they will be hard pressed to ever sell for even what they paid.

    It would be harmless if I could make threads not show in New Posts. But they do and they clog and they waste my time.

    Now if someone is outright delusional or clueless, I just set ignore for the member.

    It only bothers me on the forum. Amongst peers. Like why try and sell a fresh hand reg on here for 10k or 100k like come on. I dont care about when it's in a marketplace and they are up with the hail Mary. That's ok imo but let me stop here I don't want another article written about my thoughts.

    Oh, trust me he was not banned for flogging .top's, he was banned for spamming people via pm and email.

    He tried incessantly to sell the same domains and polluted virtually every topic with the same advertisements for his domains. He tried to sell me maple.rocks and it just went on and on even though I made it clear I was not interested. That was minor compared to what he and his brother did via email. The constant emails did not stop and there are a few choice members that simply don't understand that no means no.

    It has nothing to do with what they are selling and more to do with HOW they are selling.
    They beat the same horse in every topic, pm, and email it gets old pretty fast.
