Re: What have they done right...

It isn't about money. It is about ego.

It is being able to say, 'I am so rich I paid $X million for a piece of human excrement.'

Excuse me, but some resell the turds for a lot more later on.

My point is: if some fellow dudes were able to grab the Russian and Chinese dollars selling turds, how couldn't we do the same with our useful web properties?

I am serious on this: What I mean is we could make thousands of dollars IF we market our domains the right way, and no, the usual ascii domain investor has no idea on how to do this.

Kind of the black pearls story, we have our white pearls to compare to (the English terms sold for millions).

Or maybe they (Russian,Chinese,Arabians) want the trendiest exquisite luxury gringo stuff, and that's why they are selling turds explaining that's the top notch? Food for thought...

Re: What have they done right...

Alpha was right after all when he spoke a few weeks ago about the need to roll the turd in glitter.

More like a few months ago. Time flies, doesn't it? Didn't realize so long has passed until I went back and examined what he said. For those who are interested, here's what he said.

it needs a little PR. Remember, you can't polish a turd, but you can roll it in glitter
Incredible foresight that was.
