This domain is NOT for sale. But I'm not stupid; if you can give me six figures (U.S. Dollars) I'd take the money and run...

November 9, 2006

Yes, it's been more than a year since I've updated. No, I don't really care. And no, I'm not dead. I've got more than 80 emails saved up that I haven't bothered posting, and no idea if I'm ever going to bother. For the most part, it was all the same-old same-old praise, complaints, and random nonsense just like what I've already posted before. So pretty much, everything already having been said, my personal motivation kind of dried up. No fun for me = no point updating.

I've been labelled things ranging from a comedic genius to an America hatemonger, and several things in between. A few people have tried to buy my domain for not nearly enough money. "" sold for $7.5 million dollars, and "" did not sell at a widely publicized internet auction, possibly because of the hyperinflated estimate of about $3 million. Yes, single-word English domains DO have a market, and my merely 6-figure minimum price is WELL short of its actual market value.

I may eventually go through my old stored up email, and post the most interesting of the bunch (with my usual snarky commentary). Or I may not. Who knows?

<< Previous | Back | Next >>

Wanks, Cranks, and Thanks

Miss me? It's been about two months since I last had time to update. Work's been busy, life's been busy, and waaaaaay too much has happened that has absolutely nothing to do with this little piece of the internet that you've either come to love or hate.

So on to the emails! (I'm only behind by two dozen? Eek!)

For those that didn't manage to catch that joke the first time around, the "Nice Tits" website belonged to a bird watching group. They liked small birds I guess.

The people involved are "The Royal Tit-Watching (Ornithological) Society of Britain", but it seems their webhosting company turned off their domain. So I guess their site is now Tits Up? But they've paid their registrar through until the middle of August, 2006 so it won't be taken over by the porn industry and/or banner ads until at LEAST then.

>> ~' MIKE '~
To his credit, his email arrived on the 25th, and Hurricane Katrina didn't make landfall in Louisiana until the 29th. Is it Bush's (or any other president's) fault that the gas companies decided to gouge the pockets of all those Americans and make record profits during that difficult time? Whose fault is it that they're ALLOWED to gouge?

The idea of a "free market" is that vendors of a product set their own price, with a goal of maximizing their profits. Consumers pick and choose which products to buy, based on their needs, the products' features, quality, location, and, among other things, price.

I never took marketing or economics in school, but some things are common sense. You can buy a quality item for more money, or a slipshod item for less money, and one or the other is a better value to you. The quality item may last longer, but that's a moot point if you're hardly ever going to use it. The slipshod item may only last half as long, but if you paid LESS than half of what the quality item was worth, you still got yourself a pretty good deal.

But consumables are a different matter. You NEED to spend "this much" on food, water, condoms, gasoline, rent, floor wax, hair spray, whatever, or else your life suffers. Either spend what they're asking, or you must do without.

The cold war between Communism and Consumerism was won, but not because of idealism. "Share and share alike" is what WE are all taught in kindergarten too, is it not? And the U.S.S.R. may be now defunct, but China is still a raging Communist dragon, and America is playing NICE with THEM.

PS. The hurricanes weren't Bush's fault, but ultimately, SOMEbody is to blame for the PREVENTABLE human disaster that followed. George Dubya Bush appointed Mr. Brown, which would seem to me to be a poor judgement call on his part, to say the least.

At the time I first registered for the domain, it was still FREE! Eventually they wised up and either realized how much it was costing them to provide that service for free, or they realized how much profit there was to be made, and it's no longer free to own a domain.

Basically I filled out a form, put in my name and a bit more relevent information, and it was MINE!!!

Sometimes I got the feeling that high school wasn't as much about education, as it was a kind of "factory" to prepare us for life in the so-called "real world". Conform, belong, learn to do what's expected of you and not necessarily what interests you.

For the vast majority of people this works well enough. They're well prepared for the "daily grind", punch-in-punch-out nine-to-five factory or office jobs.

But for the rest of us, with a smidgen more intelligence, creativity, or curiosity, we're feeling either bored or left out. So depending on our temperaments, either we keep our heads down (to avoid notice), or we act out (to BE noticed).

All generalizations aside, my earlier advice wasn't directed at the people like me who don't seem to fit, it was for the parents. If your parents aren't themselves available, if they're emotionally distant or selfish or drunk or preoccupied with their OWN problems, remember that THEY are only human too. I can't teach them to be better people. People are fallible, they make mistakes, even sometimes when they don't even KNOW they're making mistakes.

So who can YOU turn to? Teachers, siblings, grandparents, neighbours, guidance counsellors, church, there are many people out there who CAN help. I don't know anything about your particular circumstances to make specific suggestions. Volunteer at a nursing home or soup kitchen? Take up painting? I dunno. Do what's right for YOU.

I'm kind of sentimentally attached to my own name too, even though I didn't pick that one myself.

Not only didn't I take marketing nor economics in school, I didn't take philosophy either. Is it even possible to prove we're "real"? I may "feel" "real" to myself, but could I possibly be just a brain in a vat being stimulated by electrodes, a la The Matrix?

Not really. Thanks, but no thanks. I did a BIT of programming back when DOS and Windows 3.1 still ruled the world, but not so much any more. And MMORPG games aren't really my cup of tea, I'd never be able to work up any enthusiasm for a big project like that.

Kudos is a compliment or praise, and technically it may be a "singular" noun and pronounced "koo-doe", but in common usage it's used exclusively plurally and pronouced "koo-doze".

It's not the FIRST word where common usage has altered the original pronunciation or grammer (Dubya's and Homer's "Noo-Cue-Lar" as an example of how to pronouce "Nuclear", instead of the proper "Noo-Clee-Ar"). How they managed to read "Nuclear" that way, to me, is very Un-Cue-Lar.

(I wasn't complaining about having more than two parties, that little section was more tongue-in-cheek. As far as which bits are "complaints" and which are "sarcasm", I'll leave that to all of you to figure out yourselves. :-p)

One thing is to be said for America's two-party system though, they have a STABLE system. Once they vote somebody in, they don't need to have another election for four whole years! And no matter how many people think he's been lying about Iraq. Blowjobs under the Oval Office desk are a matter for public scrutiny, but thousands of wasted lives because of imaginary Weapons of Mass Destruction can just be pushed under the carpet, so to speak.

Here in Canada, we're having a whole new election, not two years after the last one, ostensibly because a bit of money went missing, dating back to the PREVIOUS elected government, not even the one the opposition parties just deposed.

I didn't have a "real" good reason to own this domain myself, except to get myself the email address "". And while I don't use the website for profit, I DO use the domain for email.

Since then, I ran my own gaming server, with my very own QuakeWorld mods, and I've put up my very own Tetris-like-game port (which never made me any money either).

OK y'all, I'm all caught up finally!

I got over the sticker shock quick enough. That extra "7" put it nearly to a million Canadian dollars, which is an absurd amount of money for a domain. If they hadn't sent that second message too, I would have just rolled my eyes and assumed they were pulling my leg.

I did give them more than a few days to reply before posting this, just in case... Ya never know, maybe they're legit after all, but just a bit shy. ;-) As for my minimum asking price, they didn't even TRY to haggle! If they can meet my concerns, maybe (just maybe) I would negotiate?

I've got visions of what sort of little seedy and nefarious designs the criminal underworld might have with a domain like this. For example, if you haven't been a good little "netizen", by not keeping up to date on ALL the patches available for your computer, whether that's Windows, MacOS, Linux, or even some arcane system I've never heard of, it doesn't take much to take control over your computer. If you aren't using the ABSOLUTELY LATEST version of your web browser, it is more than possible to take complete and total control over your computer simply by visiting a web page, and more importantly, WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE.

There are many ways of infecting your computer like this, including (but not limited to):

That's right, even if you let your computer sit there while connected to the internet and DOING NOTHING AT ALL, a Portscanning worm will come along to see if your computer can be infected. According to various news stories, a brand new Windows computer will be probed and infected in mere minutes. Once infected, they often become part of a Botnet.

Now, these Eeevil™ Hackers are smarter than most people would give them credit for. If they go and infect a massive number of computers all at once, their activities are sure to be noticed. So their preferred method is to go after machines relatively slowly, a few hundred at a time instead of thousands. By doing it this way, they're more likely to have a widespread army of Zombies LONG before the antivirus folk notice, and by then it's too late, because they've ALREADY got full control of all those computers.

So a domain like mine that gets roughly 11,000 unique visitors a month (roughly 350 a day) may be small potatoes, but perfect for their purposes. Even if only a SMALL percentage of machines are vulnerable to whatever software flaw they might try to exploit, by the end of a month that could be several hundred machines.

Working on the internet the way I do, I am very much aware of all the botnets, and I try my darndest to keep those down to a minimum in my own neck of the woods.

You may think that you personally have nothing to fear, that the Eeevil™ Hackers wouldn't have any interest in your lonely little computer, but THAT's where you're oh-so-wrong. Botnets can be used for many purposes:

Any of which is available to the NastyBad people for a price.

Keep your patches up to date. Use an Antivirus program at all times. And use a Firewall on your computer!

And I will do my best not to let MY domain get used for such Eeevil™ purposes. ;-)

Somehow this particular email REEKS of spam to me. I could be wrong, but it just feels like one of those random emails you get where they send out bunches of messages trying really hard to NOT look like spam, so they can see which accounts bounce. Basically, they're taking their $20 "millions of addresses" CD-ROMs, and verifying which ones are real BEFORE sending out spam. Or just as much fun, reselling it as a $50 "verified millions of addresses" CD-ROMs to other hopeful spammers.

Cynical, me?

But in any case, if this WAS from a real person, you can stop looking now: The end of the Internet is here.

But all things had to start somewhere...

I work as a network administrator at an ISP, and do a bit of programming when I need to.

Not so much MUDs as "old school" adventure games. I'm kind of thrilled to hear that Sam & Max just might be making a comeback...

The only big multi-user game I play when I find the time is Subspace, now known as Continuum, and specifically the "Trench Wars" variant. It's a nice and simple game on the face of it: fly your choice of spaceship around, shoot at others while simultaneously not dying yourself.

I do also have the urge to check what's new with a text-only classic game Nethack once every 18 months or so, but I've NEVER managed to finish that thing.

Gas prices aren't so high because of the government. They're so high because people are willing to pay that much, and more.

But I don't have any reason to complain about them myself, because in all honesty I could care less. (On the other hand, trying to care less would be too much work for it to be worth the bother. :-p)

I don't drive.

I ride my bicycle everywhere. In the winter, between home and work I walk uphill both ways, whether rain, sleet, snow, or blowing wind. For extreme weather, I might even put on a hat.

The biggest impact on me personally would be higher prices for consumer goods and groceries. A higher cost for shipping means that somebody has to pay for it. But even so, local produce is cheaper, fresher, and (of course) yummier.

So me? complain about gas prices? What would be the point?

In short, get over it.

And just in the past few days, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, gas prices have again soared even more. More than $3 a gallon, more than $1.20 a litre, and y'all are STILL guzzling it all down. You're addicted to your cars, and it just ain't healthy.

PS. Now that they are getting so much attention suddenly, the owners of the domain were offered $500,000 for it. Too much? More than it's worth?

It's been a quiet week. Just the regular "delete hundreds of spams a day", "there's never quite enough sleep", and generic "work sucks" rants. Same old, same old.

The biggest highlight of the week is that we've found a pair of possums living in our back porch, coming out to wander near the kitchen door each evening just about like clockwork. I used to say, "It's a good thing people domesticated cats and dogs, cuz possums is ugly." Now that I've seen some of them not merely dead at the side of the road, actually live and snuffling about, they're much cuter.

>> being a gamer, i think you know the right thing to do.
Pretty much anything I have to say on this topic has already been said before, and often much better.

Part of the core problem isn't in gaming, it's in the hell that is school, with it's general attitude that makes life into a giant popularity contest. High school, middle school, primary school, too many kids are jerks.

If you are (or were) a kid like me that didn't much care for what all the other boys were doing, and you had more fun reading, or playing puzzle games on the computer, or solving various Rubik's Cube toys, you are (or were) going to get picked on. Every day.

So I for one was the nerdy/geeky/wiseacre kid that was bullied at school. And I played (and play) games, violent and not. I watched (and watch) movies and TV, violent and not. The music I listen to ranges from Bif Naked to Enya and then some.

And yet I've never acted out violently. It's not in my nature.

It's my experience that how you are treated is a much better indicator of how you will behave or act out. If you're feeling oppressed, it makes you feel better to oppress somebody else, so that you're no longer on the "bottom of the heap", so to speak. That is the vicious cycle we have to keep a careful eye out for.

But I'm NOT any kind of expert. Parents, keep an eye out. Talk to your kids. And more importantly, listen to them.

I've had ONE serious offer of USD$100,000 back in August of 2003, but they gave up when I wouldn't accept less than <mumble> dollars. As I indicated previously, after fees and taxes, I'd only pocket about 45% or so of the sale price.

While I didn't bother keeping ALL the old emails from people offering me tiny amounts that didn't cover my 10 years' worth of domain registrar fees and site hosting, this is how much I've been offered since 2004:

In the above list, "inquiry" just means that they asked how much I would sell my domain for, and then never replied back to me. All in all, there have been queries from about a dozen people in the past year, and that's NOT including the $350,000 offer I posted to my pseudo-blog here.

Sorry folks, no making fun of anybody in THIS entry. ;-)

Canada, creepy? I'm sure bunches of it is like that, somewhere. It's not like that really around HERE though, not at all. Living in St. Catharines, it's kind of like there's nothing around here but suburbia. It's a small-city feeling, but with a major case of "Toronto Envy".

Toronto being, of course, the biggest city in all of Canada. With that big phallic CN Tower I'm not really surprised that the people here would be at all envious.

All the best movies show up in theatres in Toronto, but never around here, making me wait for the DVD.

We don't even get big concerts around here without a two-hour round trip drive to Toronto.

There IS always plenty of great stuff to do here in Niagara, I can't complain. But like I said before, it doesn't take too much to keep me happy.

AND, like I also said before, Canada sure can be weird. It's like, eh, a foreign country or something. No wonder you got creeped out a little.

On the other hand, I've been plenty creeped out on some of my few trips down to The States. But I don't judge your WHOLE COUNTRY based just on my personal perceptions of Buffalo, Detroit, or Niagara Falls. I cross the bridge from Niagara Falls, Canada to Niagara Falls, NY and everything changes so quickly from lush green space to urban brickwork, I just flat out feel uncomfortable.

But I don't judge ALL of the great U. S. of A. by any one thing. All stereotypes aside, it IS mostly a pretty nice place. But so is Canada. From Down East, to Out West, to Up North, and everywhere in between, there's always something worth seeing.

Still, keep an eye on your own valuables. I suspect that they may have seen your American license plate and thought, "Oooh! Stupid American! Easy pickin's!" At least you helped bust some of their stereotypes?

Maybe I should add an extra message to the top of the page? Something like this perhaps:

Move Along! Nothing To See Here!

Ah, who am I kidding, y'all would've read the whole page anyway.

And oh, what kind of movie would be called "killdotcom" anyway? Surely Hollywood doesn't need to rehash the same old, same old, same old plots over and over again? I'd like to think they can come up with something that's actually almost original for once?

Oh well, just more wishful thinking on my part. :-/

Layout? What layout? :-p

Actually I've hardly been getting ANY email about my site lately. Fine with me, that.

Not counting the daily thousands upon thousands of messages my mail server just drops on the floor thanks to over-active spammers, of course. My domain receives roughly 50,000-80,000 ATTEMPTS to send email to non-existing accounts each week. So many silly people needing an email address to sign up for their free porn (or whatever), but unwilling to actually give up their own, just pick something random in mine assuming that it won't actually disturb anybody.

Sorry, guys. It DOES disturb somebody: me!

Oh well, it's just a bit more white noise in the Internet's traffic.

It's been three days since I replied, so I figure that either they were just yanking my chain (which wouldn't be the first time), or my email got stuffed into their spam filter.

So if anybody cares what USD$350000 translates to in Canadian dollars, first we lose at least 10% to lawyers and escrow and commissions, leaving approximately USD$315000. Then we lose 50% of what's left to taxes, leaving approximately USD$157000 (because obviously I'm just so honest I'd never try to hide anything like that down in the Cayman Islands or something). At least in Canadian dollars it sounds a bit bigger, at nearly CAD$190000.

Which doesn't actually buy a very big house around here.

Nothing to sniff my nose at, but it's still just a pipe dream and wishful thinking.

When I checked the auction, it was a "sell my body to the tattoo artists so I can be a walking billboard for the highest bidder" one, and almost up to $150. 83 bids and 5 days left. I don't think you really need my help advertising it.

The idea of killing death is hardly new. There's Piers Anthony's On A Pale Horse, the first of his Incarnations of Immortality series. By killing Death, you become Death.

And Jason Alexander played Death in an episode of The Twilight Zone. Imagine what would happen with, say, a tragic car accident where somebody was (eww, gross) decapitated. What sort of pain would they have to endure, unable to move, unable to talk, unable to breathe, and yet unable to die? Life stops being worth living without Death.

In a similar theme, there's a pair of stories by localroger on about a guy with the power of life over death, part one part two.

But if you can get past all the nasty downsides of eliminating Death from the universe (without, say, eliminating Life from the universe in the process), I'm sure you can make a tidy profit out of it. But don't be like the Underpants Gnomes:

Step Two is rather important, so I hope you've got a plan!

OK, just for all y'all's information, I never have and never will advocate killing anybody. And especially not for personal gain. Not out loud anyway... :-p (OK, you got me, I'm just kidding, on that last part. ;-))

Playing games, getting rid of pests, and even a bit of fun-filled candy, THAT I can heartily endorse.

PS. Anybody wants to send me some of those candies is more than welcome to, they never did show up on store shelves around here and they went and discontinued it because parents without a sense of humour thought they were advocating violence against animals! Violence against gummy candy is more like it.

My mind may be more than warped enough as it is, but I managed to do that all by myself, thankyewverramuch. My choice of candy had NOTHING to do with it. :-p

Let's count the stupidities here:

So whether it actually was you calling me back in February or not, writing to me about it now is, simply, stupid.

<< Previous | Back | Next >>

I haven't had any complaints or kudos for a few days, it's almost back to normal! Ah, bliss.

But I figured I'd share a short story from earlier this year, it happened near the end of February.

Out of the blue, early on a Saturday night (well, being Canuckistan it was already dark out by 7:30, so I can get away with calling it "night") the phone rang. The Caller ID said Unknown Name and a long distance number, so figuring it's just another telemarketer I handed the phone off to my roommate for him to deal with. We were both watching a new movie recently released on DVD, "Nausicaa".

Unfortunately, it WAS for me. My roommate had this strange look on his face, because he's already been confused by the caller. "There's somebody on the phone saying there's a problem with your domain?"

So I'm puzzled. My domain's all paid up, and I've got all the correct information in whois. I get on the phone.

Some guy was claiming he was calling from my registrar, and told me he was concerned that somebody was trying to steal my domain. He's not being very clear on the phone, and I don't think English is his first language, but I can't place the accent.

He wants to "verify" my information with me over the phone. I'm relatively paranoid in the first place, but I am already concerned. There's no reason for me to believe he is who he says HE is, so I asked for some confirmation. I asked for him to email me from his email account at the registrar.

It arrives shortly, and I log in to work via the nifty Telnet application on my Hiptop (you Americans call it a "Sidekick"). There's something weird about the email, so I went upstairs to boot my computer. My Hiptop is cool and all, lets me do work from anywhere I can get cellphone reception, but it's too slow and awkward to do TOO much technical crap while also having a very confusing while also having a very confusing conversation with a stranger.

I'm getting frustrated because he won't answer any of MY questions. You've heard of social engineering, and I'm NOT a sucker.

But I AM willing to give the benefit of the doubt. Even though the email's Received: headers say the origin was NOT from the registrar, I replied anyway. The Reply-To: address was from my registrar, so MAYBE he was working from home.

I don't get a reply, and he says he hasn't gotten anything from me. I'm being VERY patient, despite that he's being extraordinarily confusing and unhelpful, blaming me for everything.

Finally I'm starting to raise my voice, almost half an hour later. I've inspected the email headers in detail by now, and tell him (relatively politely, considering that I'm pissed off) "I don't understand why somebody working for [my registrar] would email me from a machine in France." "I don't know what you're talking about." "Do you want me to tell you the IP address?"

A very short silence on the phone, and he just hung up.

I'd never said I worked at an ISP for ten years and was intimately knowledgable about email headers and "whois" data and so on, so I think I caught this scammer completely off guard. :-p

So, my domain is obviously worth enough to somebody for them to go to that much effort to try and steal it from me. Attempted theft! But no harm done, so I go back downstairs to finish watching my interrupted movie.

Feel free to register any domain that YOU want to use, don't let ME stop you.

Somebody's already registered "" and "" though (the second one being an example of what they do to domains where they expect lots of tpyos [sic] but with fewer banner ads than average), so obviously they're just flying off the shelf, so to speak. Get yours now, don't delay, or it'll be too late! Don't be the LAST one on your block with a domain! ;-)

If having both domains will make mine worth enough money for you to own both, please do, go right ahead. It really is trivial to have both domains going to the same website. Try it now!

I'm sure there's one or two words in the English lanugage I've missed, but most ought to work just fine. :-p

>> Dear Mr. Boese,
There's a standard disclaimer you often see, verbatim, on emails. You'd think that with all this lawyer-speak they'd be a BIT more worried about copyright violations and actually have their lawyers draft a new one just for them?

Anyway, you'll find THIS one spread far and wide:

>> Confidentiality Statement:
>> This e-mail, including attachments, may include confidential and/or 
>> proprietary information, and may be used only by the person or entity to

>> sender by replying to this message and delete this e-mail immediately.  
You see them showing up on mailing lists too, because some company or other's lawyer has a policy that nobody is supposed to leak information that competitors or detractors or whoever might latch onto, to their detriment.

I just got one of these in the email the other day, so unlike the other rants and kudos that I've posted here, I won't be posting exactly what was sent in the email, or even who sent it. Of course since I didn't sign any kind of contract with them this is the legal equivalent of shrinkwrap licenses, and not legally enforceable in any way, shape or form. (Don't quote me on that, I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV. :-p) In any case, it's not worth my time or money to bother being annoyed by anybody else's lawyers, so I won't post the email here.

So just the basic gist of it, yet-another domain broker was checking out my domain, and told me that based solely on my raw monthly stats, he was certain he could find somebody willing to pay more than $9000. They've got a long list of buyers specifically interested in domains where people type them in just to see what happens.

Nope, sorry, still not interested. Show me the money, then maybe I'll think about it. Or else I'll just post your email here and laugh at you. :-p

Nothin' says lovin' like an ad hominem attack. Ah, democracy!

Thank goodness for the internet, the world's biggest functioning democracy. Everybody's entitled to their opinion, and to voice it pretty much however they please. (Within the law, of course.)

Yup, Canada sucks. I certainly didn't say it didn't suck. Mad cows, cheap lumber, having to deal with more than two political parties, gay marriage, legal marijuana, Celsius and the whole gol'dang metric system, I could go on and on. We suck. I couldn't agree with you more on that point!

Nope, nothing to see here. Nothing at all... I'm just an old has-been anyway. So I don't have time any more to keep up with all that old gaming stuff like I used to, life isn't always fair. :-p

Democracy says you can stand on a soapbox in the park and spout whatever message you want. But you have to bring your own soapbox, and THIS is MY soapbox. Generally I don't have anything to say for all to hear, so I don't bother. You wanna read mundane details of people's lives, you go right on ahead.

And so I don't use my website for profit, so what? There's more to the internet than web sites, and I use my domain for the email to keep in touch with my friends.

My domain was appraised by professionals, and it's worth a hell of a lot more than $9,000. I just lucked out, man. As an analogy, if somebody offered you $100 for your brand new Buick, would you take it, or would you feel insulted?

>> You dumb Canadian!!!
>> Nobody will ever give you six figures for a highly offensive domain with

>> Greed is ugly, "eh".
First of all, I do not want to sell my domain. More specifically, I want to not sell my domain. I've had this thing for more than a whole decade now (wow!).

But before I put up those notices, I was getting one or two queries a month, people wanting to give me $50-$250 for my domain. Just ain't worth my while, what with registrar fees, domain hosting, disk usage, bandwidth, etc. etc. etc. After putting my first notice up, those all stopped and life was good.

THEN people started trying to offer me $1000-$2500. I'm hardly hurting for cash, even if I haven't had a raise at this job for quite a few years. My lifestyle just doesn't need that much cash, sitting in the park reading is pretty cheap. :-p

And for whoever cares, that $9000 figure was from somebody who just wanted to have some banner-driven advertising site, and their price was based on just the raw 11,000+ unique visitors I get here every month. And since I don't do any kind of promotion for my little vanity domain, those hits are mostly just from people randomly surfing the web, typing in my domain, just to see what happens.

That's 11,000 eyeballs every month, guaranteed, and I'm not trying to make a buck off any of them, and I could care less. Greedy, me?

My nickname is "possum" (hardly one I'd have picked myself, but meh). So "" was just a vanity domain, and I got "" because "" was already taken. :-p

All the same, if somebody DID offer me USD$150,000, who would be MORE stupid? Them for offering it, or me for not just jumping at the chance? They say that everything has its price, and for this domain, that is mine. Is anybody ever going to bother? I really rather doubt it.

So it's got offensive connotations? If I wanted to run a snuff porn site, or some anti-Dubya anti-war site, or an animal rights "stop the killing" site, that's my business. I'm not, so it's a moot point really.

If you want a domain with offensive connotations, try Nice Tits.

<sarcasm>Those bastards, exploiting women, sexual degradement, blah, blah, blah.</sarcasm>

In short, get a life.

Thank you, I feel much better now.
