    I think calling this a .com price crash is very over-dramatic. You wouldn't take a Mike Mann hand-reg to 10k conversion and claim .com is booming either. Snoopy on the other blog says the original 10m sale was largely discredited in the first place. There are many examples of people getting a little over-excited about domains, inc' flowers.mobi, cameras.com etc - they wrongly thought a name alone was a money-spinner.

    It was mentioned 10 years ago about SEC filings (because the sale seemed absurd even without all the other info that came out later).

    The filing does not make the sale legitimate.
