    I think the point is the people pitting Rick vs Mike have to look at a few things. They are both friends, and may have different ideologies with regards to the new gtlds, its not like Rick will pass on a good opportunity.

    It seems like we want to make domaining into a reality tv show, this week on GTLD Wars (Yes I own the name Samit) there are so many tv shows on my Comcast that have wars, Storage Wars, Cupcake Wars,Dig Wars etc… So maybe we can get a webseries.

    Anyway, the new gtlds cannot be painted with the same brush, some are novelty type extensions where others are business type extensions. If someone is going to market to small businesses and knows how to sell they may be able to make a decent ROI, not get rich, never approach and for $1.35 million but hopefully make some money.

    Its all about finding opportunities that go with your strengths and topics where you have passion and knowledge.

      That’s a nice domain Ray! Sure sounds like a TV show.

      Sure a lot of inexperienced users are going to lose a substantial amount of money buying junk just because it’s ‘new’.

      I agree that it’s about going with your strengths.
