    Yeah I was gonna say that the names that I have received offers on are related to music. Didn't law.info sell recently? Was that a european buy?

    Must be a really bad week for the staunch .commer. Now you have a likely wls and a surging .info. Must be a nightmare.
    One mans surge is another mans distraction - remember we all work at different scales.

    I wasn't talking about me per se, but when you talk about "staunch .commers" that group includes some serious earners and to think a few .info sales in 4/5 figures or the wls is a "nightmare" to them seems misplaced.

    I was also referring to the conveniently omitted serious possibility of imminent wls.

    I've never hid my view on what will happen under the wls, but neither am or many others "staunch .commers" relying on it.

    Just gently reminding you to keep things in perspective and realise that something big to you may be relatively trivial to other people.

    Its a direction safe - wls making it difficult for most specs to participate in com spec'ing as we've discussed here often so they turn to new tlds like .info like they are already doing - and they are being met with offers and sales (they are also exposing the hell out of it - the specs - which helps create awareness) . This will likely lead to a lot more use (suerely these are not all reseller sales) exposing .info's sensibilty creating more specing, sales, use onward and upward.

    But we'll see.

    I don't agree that speculators switching to a different tld has the effect of making end users do likewise.

    Domain value is driven through demand not through supply.

    Thats not what I'm saying. The demand is already there obviously.

    The spec's simply create more exposure through the marketing. And since .com will be only for those (specs) with big pocketbooks and serious phone skills, .info marketing will likely be rampant amoung most specs, who are not at the least rich enough to compete for .com, by and large. Its already happening with the successful auction model - its getting too expensive for many to compete.

    I'm seeing .com vets pitching info names.

    The specs simply help create exposure.

    The "belief" part of all this is that .info has an inherent sensibility that is appealing.

    So, if you have spec's marketing .info, which is believed to be appealing, and has shown itself to be in some demand - this is potential for growth.

    I don't think thats obvious at all. If it were, why are we seeing massive decline in number of .info registrations and where are the *big* .info sales?

    Yes, there seems to be a steady stream of .info sales for top tier terms especially in europe but the volume of sales isn't enough to support the notion of inherent value and recognition imo.

    I'm not saying theres not money to be made in .info, but you have to be realistic about this all imo.

    Look at what .info has had to endure. It was released the week of one the worst events in human history. All the generic names were taken by people without legitimate trademarks. It ben a terrible economy that is beginning to improve.

    Many generic infos still are taken with questionable tm data.

    The first sale of business.com was what couple 100k? The second how much? .Info is growing - the sales are getting higher.

    Many of the names dropping are very .commian in that they are not like maybe the wisest choices. Hey but the better ones many here are happy to snap up.

    I agree but trying to pigeonhole info as only good for this or that is premature and the facts don't bare it up.

    Generic infos in general get nice offers - medical, geo and more.

    safesys I don't see a decline in registrations. Where do you see that?
