    Yeah, #9 on your list says it all – which is one of the many reasons why this industry is viewed as a clique to corporate end-users; and why asset prices may never reach ‘fair value’.

    Oh yah, I sold a name for $108 and I text my wife to let her know. hehe
    It’s never too big or too small of an amount to let your wife know…because she’s the boss!!
