    So how much was paid for the domain name originally? I know at the beginning people were snapping up domain names like,, etc., for literally a few bucks and then turning around and selling them for millions.

    Did techspot run out of actual news? This is sort of embarrassing to have on my homepage. Maybe it's just me.

    you know what some may find offensive there Princeton? this post by you earlier:

    The above is not asterisked out on the news page.

    you have quite a lot of nerve kvetching about offensive.

    There was a huge scandal about some years ago. Where a con artist was able to transfer domain rights to himself and made millions on advertising revenues before the courts ordered him to return the domain and pay $65 million in fees/damages. Upon which he filed appeals and fled the country. Ultimately he still owes more than the current sale value of the website.
