    Too much fantasy, and name calling.

    I once read that 99% of domain name participants are operating at a loss.
    I believe this is not far from reality.
    Because their believes are distant from reality.
    99% of domain name participants have believes that are distant from reality, it seems.

    Domains can definitely be a very high octane pipe dreaming fuel

    If the failure rate is so high why not acquire > develop > monetise like I do? Common cents really. Buy keyword names. Add useful content. Post relevant ads. Make money. What's so difficult? I hear all these sob stories about not making money from domain names but there's a money tree growing on your front lawn. imo.

    Too much blanket statements & vague posts.

    Care to elaborate? It’s OK, to struggle, but dont blame industry for your success (or lack)

    I read 99% of stats are made up.
    Might be higher than 89%.
    This proves it. Please. Any sources? link

    @Magul As long as you've got your domaining locked down with good names and a market ...who cares. Get on with your thing, don't worry about other people

    I don't particularly have a doom and gloom view about this. You're either buying right or not, and if you aren't, its an education

    This industry may need a reality check about your statements.

    Laziness is the biggest problem in every endeavour.

    Though, it can also be beneficial sometimes.

    Sometimes you are lazy about pricing something, then it continues to go up in value and demand in the meantime.

    For most part, this is a "subjective valuation" business.

    There is no moral, but it is the truth.
