    The 5 Stages of Domain Speculation

    The 5 Stages of Domain Speculation

    Stage 1. Denial - "You're wrong, the domain isn't worthless, I was offered $1000 for it"

    Stage 2. Anger - More argument, appraisal thread heats up.

    Stage 3. Bargaining - "Domain for sale: I'm looking for $100", "Ok how about $50", "$8?"

    Stage 4. Depression - "What's the use, this domain won't sell, there is no money to be made doing this"

    Stage 5. Acceptance - Occurs 12 months from registration date

    Stage 3.a ) after lowering the price all the way to $8 USD , you recieve an $4 USD offer with the infamous "justify your price" after replying with an highly detailed 10 page response (charts,trends and graphs included ) buyer doesn't bother to respond nor cancel the offer... # 4 sets in.

    7) You not only renew it but you also grab the plural or the .net (seriously ill grab all extensions) - to defend your brand.
