    I think I'm addicted to buying/acquiring domain names. I think this because every time I tell myself that I won't buy more.....I buy more. Am I crazy? Are the domains just too good to pass up? Am I an addict?

    What's your take?

    When every time you see sentences ending with a dot, you get an odd feeling.

    Sometimes when people are talking to me, I am hearing what they are saying as domain names.

    It's crazy!

    I think if you are willing to for-go things like going out on a saturday night because you spent all your money on domains

    You know you are addicted to acquiring domain names when:
    • You rather buy domains than sell them.
    • You buy 10x more domains than you sell.
    • You refuse to sell certain domains when the offer is 10x what you paid.
    • You worry about missing out on an auction or expired domain more than you do about making a sale.
    • You dread selling domains, but you love buying them.
    • You write down domains you want to buy so you don't forget.
    • You spend hours per day looking through lists of domains to buy.
    • You want to buy every good domain in the world.
    If you experience any of these symptoms, you're addicted.

    I'm addicted, and I'm proud of it!

    I know that feeling. I always rationalize my domain buying.

    bidding at auctions, dropcatching etc. give you an adrenaline rush. Once you get used to it you don't want to stop. After a while you need a higher dose (better catch). Usually they cost more so you need more money. Then you start selling domains to others. Once you have it you are not satisfied and want more.
