    Yes, you got me. I'm really Paul Newman. That picture is a giveaway. I'll sell it to you together with the URL, "sehrdickpaulnewman.com" for $1M.

    Your domains should include "dummconman.com" and "unwissendscamartist.com". They would fit your profile quite aptly.

    I also must admit that this is the most entertainment I've had on SB for a while. Who would have thought that a conman would insult an avatar? Really? I'm wrecked emotionally because Herr BetrĂ¼ger is insulting a fat version of "Paul" Newman.

    Try this domain at the Decostop forum. I'm sure that you will sell it there immediately. They love that kind of stuff.

    This thread has been very entertaining!

    Quote of the year:
    "You are a fat (and im sure, very unsuccessful) Porky, but im not a con!"

    I'm sure tridacna won't take it personally but Wayne Knight probably won't appreciate it

    But there has also been some very good info on domain values. I manage a few websites and have never tried the 'netvaluator' thing. It was very interesting to run some of my domains on it.

    My advancedundersea dot com has increased in value almost fifteen fold since I registered it many years ago. It's been increasing in value a few dollars every year. In 185 years, I can buy a new set of tires for the car. It also says the income from the site is about .80 cents a day but I don't know who's getting that. Also, every one of my sites was rated 'Poor' for 'child safety'. Not sure what's up with that but it's probably for the best anyway.

    It is possible that someone could come up with a domain name that is so striking, so compelling and appealing that it would have some desirability or dollar value just because it was so cool even though it has no stats or history. If it was unique enough, there could be some kind of bidding war.
    I have a poetry anthology available at pooplets dot com. Now who would have guessed that such a cool domain name like 'pooplets' wasn't already registered. There are clearly still awesome domain names available.

    Even some of the really cool names that are already registered command very little value. Like a grade school kid with an unabridged dictionary, I had to look up some dirty words. Check out the value of b*tth*le dot com. $9.95.
    Imagine that you could own a name that iconic for less than $10!

    Did I win the bidding yet? I've been working up some concept stuff for snotface.com. I wonder if I could get a package deal for that and b*tth*le.com? I'm losing interest in the tryoutscuba thing and may just have to flip that one.

    And yeah, before you get started, I'm fat.

    Whoa. I think we can all agree that he has officially lost it.

    The tool is really inaccurate. The $/day is based on estimated traffic, which, when I compare to all the sites I have access to Google Analytics on is laughably far off. The tool also had all of my sites as poor for child safety despite Web of Trust (WOT) saying the opposite.

    I know nothing about the resale of domain names but this thread was pretty entertaining.

    My question is: what is an avatar scam? Apparently it's a big deal in Deutschland.

    Very entertaining thread!

    I *think* that is referring to practice of using sexy or provocative pics to lead people to click on your website, when those pics have nothing to do with your webspace.
