Unadjusted expectations

There’s a reason they’re called Clients From Hell:

I'm not looking for a website - I was actually hoping to get $500,000 for my domain name. How can you help me with that?

To tell you the truth, I don’t think you could get five hundred K even for ZooeyDeschanelWardrobeMalfunctions.com.

    About a year ago I discovered most of the variations of Flack (.com, .org) were being sat upon by squatters, one for at least 10 years. I offered one of them a couple hundred bucks for one of them and was told the least they would take was $7,500.

    Here’s how this story ends: I don’t own any new domains and I ended up on their spammy mailing list.

    They should live so long. (Well, actually, no, they shouldn’t.)

    When I let McGehee.cc lapse a few years ago, some German schmo with no McGehee ties whatsoever snapped it up along with some of my content and put up a website. When I discovered it I told him to remove my content from his site, which he did.

    And he offered to sell me back the domain if we could agree on a price. I didn’t respond.
