Yes, two!

The first is that acknowledging that these are Dot Com and not some weird separate category. That is good!

Second is that 人.com people is intrinsically the most valuable domain in the whole damned auction!!!!!!

Wow, I looked at the list and didn't even notice that.

I'd like to see the reserve on 人.com

Even the look of 人.com makes me sick. The owner is a complete ass. In 2004 I negotiated a deal to purchase the domain for $375. When I was about to submit payment he decided not to sell and sent me some of the WEIRDEST emails I have ever received. Total nut job. Wish I still had those emails.

Have you ever negotiated with her over a domain? The behaviour is pretty similar to the described...

If by Opinionated, you mean just plain wrong most of the time, I will buy that! :p

Re: SnapNames Live Auction Accepting IDNs?

She has always been very nice to me. Seems like no one sticks up for her, so I will. She does have a clear opinion on IDNs. For example, Arabics are worthless, but hers are not for sale.

However, I agree with Dabsi that Latins are worth something. I am not convinced that they are the only ones worth something, but they are just as useful as other scripts.

Anyway, hugs all around. SnapNames Live Auction Accepting IDNs!

When stuff are worth hard money, ppl generally don't talk about it. You can also hardly find them for sale here.

Of course, at this early stage, what will be worth more is quite subjective, everything is just speculation.

The best thing to do is to diversify - buy a bit of everything.
