Re: Bubblllle -> Burst

Summary of the article says it all about LLLL- "this is no longer the safe bet it once was".

Guess that makes me want to ask the question "was it ever?"

Recipe for a Bubble Burst

1 x forum full of mainly numpties
1 x stupid idea
150 x sheep armed with credit cards
1 x hyped "count-down" thread

stir like crazy and leave to bake for 12 months.
Remove from oven, sprinkle some dawning realisation and place in trash.

Re: Bubblllle -> Burst

Do many domainers buy on credit? That seems terribly risky.

Yeah, mainly on Daddy's credit card would be my guess as most of them seem to either be about 14 ... or act like it anyway.

Re: Bubblllle -> Burst

Let's see if he has the balls to let my comment get through moderation.

In case it doesn't, for the record, here it is:

****
Meaningless LLLL.com’s have always been next to worthless, apart from this bubble self-inflated by a group of twits.

You would have all been better off regging QUALITY IDN’s that were sitting there begging to be registered.

Traffic on Russian IDN.com’s is EXPLODING. We tried to tell you, but you all laughed in our faces.

Well now it’s our turn.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.
