Snake Oil!

This is the latest libelous comment I've been hit with while trying to market some IDNs: I'm trying to sell snake oil.

Anybody else got any good ones?

I have been lucky enough to have some e-mailing and asking to buy. They typically aren't realistic in their offers for the quality domains they are asking for.
But nice to see the interest building on a regular basis.

Comments from any group of people, assuming you provide a translation :-)

I was discussing some names on an international forum, not domaining, and some american people immediately jumped in with the snake-oil libel. Man, if it were singapore I'd be suing for a million.

Re: Snake Oil!

Just think, pretty soon you'll have the chance to rub their noses in it.

Priceless!

Re: Snake Oil!

The importance of what people think is only relative to their market status.

Who the f§ck are these people anyway?

Re: Snake Oil!

I get more negativity from Arabic speakers (living in Arabic countries) than Americans.

Any American with whom I have discussed IDNs is very curious, but not negative.

The only negative American responses I have personally received are from foreign nationals living in America - usually in Florida.
