Venture Capitalist, Wished to Buy Sex.com Instead Buys All Domains From DomainMadness Auction

by Frank Michlick in Categories: April 1

Please note that the following is a parody intended for April Fools day 2010.

As the DomainMadness2 comes to a close, the extended auction which closes today has been served up a huge boost.  At the start of the day today, venture capitalist Stefan Roegge emailed the DomainMadness team and informed them that he wished to purchase all the domains in the extended auction.

This is just a much better way to invest in domain names. Rather than invest all my eggs in one basket, I can buy a wide variety of names in various niches and classes for less than the cost of 1 domain. This is the perfect opportunity to buy premium domains and jump start a portfolio” wrote Roegge in his email.

Since the domain names are still at auction, the domains have not officially been sold. Bids are still open at  DomainMadness2.com until 3pm today

The live DomainMadness event saw a healthy amount of sales rung up with the CamRoulette.com sold for $151,000 and a total sales volume of over $209,000. The extended auction couldn’t have hoped for better publicity as the auction closes today.

Frankie, are you sure this article isn’t a feed from “Domaingang.com”? Someone really made an offer on all your domains listed? ;-)

By the way, I love the price for “BitterMelonExtract.com” – $4000. Oh yes… I love that price all the way to the bank… if it sells.

I have about 15 more popular herb, fruit, food extracts and powder domains than “bitter melon” (whatever that is). I sold two already for an average of $650 each. Depending on the domain, if you’re interested, let me know and I’ll submit them for pricing way under $4000… but you’ll sell them!

BTW: I really like your DOMAINMADNESS2.COM website. Simple, easy to navigate. A winning site formula. Keep up the good work! Also, if you need an “Atom Tamer”, let me know. I know where his “tickle spots” are… which will incapacitate him for hours.

yours truly,

The Varangian Jarl
