During an exchange on another thread the word "hobbyist" was thrown out to discredit a valid difference of opinion I had. I didn't feel the need to disclose my professional experiences so I did not engage in a rebuttal and was content with being labeled a hobbyist. I have no problem with being a hobbyist and having my primary professional experience being my primary income. The one thing that is bothersome is that the word "hobbyist" was used as a way to discredit a differentiating point of view, it was used as, implying, "you don't know what your talking about because you don't domain for a living." My opinion is that there are many people who domain invest as a hobbyist. Meaning that domain sales may not be their primary income. Hobbyists can be very knowledgeable in domaining and other professions. Hobbyists are the primary source of domain investors and the collective talent makes domain investing interesting and adventurous. Trying to discredit a domain investor by labeling them a "hobbyist" is ignorant and lacking basis. Hobbyists come from many backgrounds and adds to the talent pool in domain investing. I personally enjoy the hobbyist as much as the full time domainer. Although, that's my opinion. What do you think of "hobbyist" domain investors? Good or bad?
