Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide

Well, not really a mass suicide, since there only 20 people worldwide collecting this sh!t. Compare that with 20,000 people collection .mobi
Mobi just announced 1,000,000 domain regged.
IDNs dropped 45,000 in March and 50,000 in April.
China lost 4 mil names last year.

Re: Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide

Snakes! Get 'em off me. They are crawling all over my skin.

Seriously, why do you give this nutter any attention? It's what he wants. He feeds off of it. He throws out bogus info without a source to back up any of his insane rants.

The dude reminds me of a Loughner-type personality. I'm sure the "voices" are telling him lots of things.

I'm sure the voices are telling him things like ...

"You are a popular and nice person"
"One day you will meet a girl"
"Your friend(s) DO(ES) like you"
"Your humour and wit is what makes you so popular"
"Don't listen to bad things others say about you - its all untrue"
"Everyone else is jelous of you"
"No, you are not a wanker - don't think such thoughts !"

Re: Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide



Narcissus (mythology)

Narcissism

I found this note interesting: "Some experts believe a disproportionate number of pathological narcissists are at work in the most influential reaches of society such as medicine, finance and politics"

and a couple of my favorite quotes on the subject...

"Narcissus weeps to find that his Image does not return his love."

"Withhold admiration from a narcissist and be disliked. Give it and be treated with indifference. "
-Mason Cooley

Invoking the ascii crowd is like gazing in the pool...

Re: Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide

DN-101 is "Miguel" who used to be a member here but was banned for multiple conflict
with other members and way too many off topic posts.... you can gather his style from DNF.
He invests in IDN while he bashes them. Go figure...

If IDN investors are feeling suicidal, imagine the hellpit .mobi investors must be mired in.

Re: Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide

Miguel is the "sometimes, vice versa"

You surely must know progress, when you see the narcissist gazing back at yourself


"He invests in IDN while he bashes them. Go figure..."


Perhaps he feels such actions help keep his window of opportunity open.

I have read many articles about domains reaching minimal expectations regarding traffic, clicks or even search engine interest and still having significant, intrinsic value. The most minimal description of these metrics has been described as a 'heartbeat'

If I had a mobi portfolio that had as much of a 'heartbeat' as my IDN portfolio I wouldn't be concerned at all.

Then again I wouldn't describe my IDN portfolio as being on life support either.

It's pretty much running around the room shooting baskets.

Sounds like articles written by desperate ASCII sheep-dudes that have "invested" in .mobi, .despair, .pitsofhell etc. I'll feel sorry for them if they weren't so dumb-assed.

My IDN portfolio is looking healthier every day in terms of visitor numbers, CPC. How many ASCII-sheep can say that? Probably haven't been able to say that for 5 or 6 years now.

Trend is your friend, as one famous ASCII domainer once said - turns out he was right - but should have added the caveat "as long as you invested in positively-trending domains".

I still love ASCII domainers that can't come round to calling IDN ".com" domains as being ".com". The clue is in the suffix, dumb-asses.

Re: Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide

Rick has been charging rich fees for a decade to give people the knowledge and contacts need to earn a living from domains, but by his own admisssion only a feew dozen actually do make a living, and few of them would give Rick the credit. Go figure!

Re: Idn desperation may lead to mass suicide

Actually, the guy could be on to something.

There have been a lot of perfectly good portfolios junked for peanuts due to impatience.

There are going to be big regrets.

You know, I feel the same way.

I see names on here going CHEAP and I'm at a loss. I only wish I had more disposable cash.

It's like guys, we are a month away from our gTLD program kicking off. After all these years do you really want to sell those names for those prices? Right now? Really?

Oh well, none of my business I guess.

I feel the same way, if I wasn't so strapped with my renewals...I'd be bidding on these bargains (Steals).
