Well a lot of the culprits are from here. Those that are trying to talk the market down may well be amongst the worst offenders. The BS factor is growing daily.

In the last year we've made like 3000% progress in the market. It's like almost exactly 1 year ago you were alone in the info you had about IDNs. Think of your profits, that you've made in this one year, think of the quality of your portfolio now compared to the 1000 domains you had 1 year ago.

I'm not saying this to criticize you friend but this is just a slump.
Comparing to 1 year ago this is great but, thinking about how things will be 1 year later is more important.

1. Parking revenue (correctly)
2. IE7 & Vista in use
3. Domain selling services (local versions)
4. Natives making IDN websites
5. Natives start to use IDNs in ads.

I personally think Sedo will get the biggest IDN sales (& have said it before). They will have to get better for many to switch to their parking service but they have the clients & track records for high end domain sales.

I do know the domains I sell here are for resellers. I wouldn't sell to Japanese for the same prices.
Agree with most of that. I wasn't trying to knock the forum or even particularly get at any particular group. I was just trying to explain that the dynamics of the market at the moment are all screwed as the people who should be buying to selll elsewhere are coming here to try to sell to others whose primary interest at this moment in time is selling. I have no doubt that in a month or so both lots will be starting to buy.
