I got an email today from someone in Denmark wanting to buy nitallica.org off me for $900. Granted, I wouldn’t sell my domain unless it were for a flagrantly obscene amount of money … and just under a grand isn’t anywhere near PG-13, much less obscene. ;)
I replied, told her I was curious and wanted to know why she wanted my domain. She replied a couple of minutes later saying that if I agreed to sell it was to be used for advertising.
She did make it clear that she didn’t want any of my content, just the domain. I politely declined. This name has been my online identity since my old BBS days. (Any locals still around from the Matrix? Last time I checked, my account still worked, LOL!)
It did make me wonder if other domains that I had registered in the past could’ve made me a profit rather than me just letting them go. (All but one are now owned by companies similar to the lady who contacted me today — using them for advertising.)
Food for thought I guess …
