    This is my opinion, from 7324 days of experience.
    As manipulated as gold.
    As manipulated as silver.
    As manipulated as bitcoin.
    As manipulated as housing.

    This is an opinion. Take it or leave it.

    Once thing is certain, this opinion has now been voiced.

    Hallelujah.

    Remember, @offthehandle.

    You’re playing a dangerous game, my friend.

    Good luck, the burden-of-proof is on you LoL!. -Also, i want to agree, like u care,think helping.
    but just sound really salty over ass com sale -Frankly, it’s unbecoming and unprofessional!

    How many threads has it been? 1, 2, .6.?
    threads screams “jealous of best’s success.”

    Maybe the .sucks ngtld, if

    These threads are harmful, please stop.

    We’re lucky, it will take more than that to
    DETER THE KING 👑 RICK SCHWARTZ!
    But makes more, less inclined to share “big” threads are the most jelly-filled seen ever : ) My opinion, no amount of “clickbait” threads is going to change that. ur digging deeper hole

    I'll leave it.

    Every field has some % of bad actors, frauds, snake oil salesmen, charlatans, etc.

    I don't think that is unique to the domain world.

    It depends on the extent of the “fraud”
    In this case, virtually zero, none.
    (Ass sold for $6M plus royalties)

    In the case of everyday sales (I.E. auctions)
    I think many are competing against bots or get overly emotional — so it can be “manipulated” in that regard. Godaddy, Dropcatch particularly

    “I dont know how you do it.” those auctions.
    Pl dont say “backlinks” # 1 excuse to overpay. -Good news, as say, keep saying many times;
    Thank God for Closeouts makes up for auction

    Also, NP Auctions often give me great deals. They exception to “beware auction” rule imo.
    Beware auctions! Should for mos experienced.

    I don't :) As long as I make money I'm happy!
    Almost all markets are manipulated anyway! Wrote this on another thread recently as well: several banks have received regulatory fines for manipulating the silver price and keeping it artificially low. Be smart and take advantage of it. I'm grateful... I get to buy physical silver for cheap :)

    I think you are defining manipulated as huge whales entering the market and paying millions of millions of dollars for a domain. Even if a whale buys a 4L for $1,000,000, it still isn't manipulation. Why? Because domains are on a spectacle of worth, and it all comes down to the seller. If you as a domain holder, own a specific domain, and specifically want way more money than current market evaluation, you are in your entire right to sell it for more. There are specific domains that I own that I would never let go unless I got $100k+, but maybe are only worth $30-40k right now. Why? Because I don't need the money, and I place a lot of value on the domain. However, if a whale comes by with the right price, I would be ok with selling. This is usually the case with these really expensive domain names, and almost all of them are really good. Now think about the kind of people who invested early in this market, they have well over millions of dollars. Why would they sell one of their domains for cheap when they have already more than made it in life? They can afford to step back unless someone big comes in and buys it. Which is what is happening, big players who want top pages for top dollar are paying huge amounts for great domains.

    Some form of manipulation exists in just about anything, sadly. As long as your domains are selling, at a price you're happy with ...from a business standpoint for you, are you happy? Just my perspective

    Agree.

    Comparison is the thief of joy. Comparing yourself with Rick S will only compound this problem, without a critical study of his portfolio.

    And domaining is a subjective business.

    Why Zoom only bought zoom.com when Media Options became the seller?

    For millennia (in internet time) Zoom was probably getting customers feedback, that they go to zoom.com instead of zoom.us and don't find their business.

    Even if Zoom's owner was not thinking, their customers were.

    Many of them typed in zoom.com instead of zoom.us

    And then they spoke to Zoom about it.

    Why Zoom did not buy it from the original owner?

    Are you familiar with a history of zoom.com domain name sale and history of change of ownership?
