    I've said this before (I think) and I'll say it again - on this forum be prepared for someone to have a different opinion from you, and if they do, don't treat it as a personal attack.

    Oh, and .net.au's are shite ;)

    Good on you :)

    I registered a dozen or so. $12 won't break the bank.

    Do you think everyone will drop them after the first period?

    i.e. is it $1 spent per name or is it $1 + $20x where "x" is each renewal period. Typically someone with a decent name takes a decade or 2 (actually probably more like 5+) before a name sells. The outlay is still going to be significant.

    Secondly what is the value of a person's time to find them, I think it isn't $0.

    I posted elsewhere, as a bet on collingwood lost 2 weeks ago, I HAD to buy a .net.au which I did, that is all I bought.

    i agree with snoopy, $1 is not the real cost of ownership.

    Agree the $1 doesn't include the time spent identifying and reg-ing them (but I have plenty of .com.au's that wouldn't pass that qualification). It would be hard work to flip most net.au for profit - even at $1.

    Having said that, I didn't reg them to flip them and I wasn't blindly mining. The dozen or so I reg'd were in a specific niche and I selected them using a formula.

    I should have the first site online this week. While I won't say the site or the niche (because @Snoopy might reg the remaining .net.au's ;) ), I'll report back in a few weeks if it generated any $$$.

    He may but I don't think so as he's already said a few times in this thread that he prefers .com.au's.

    Kind of like preferring men I guess.

    I believe that FindTim's reply included some sarcasm though ;)

    I like to give ppl the benefit of the doubt.

    Posting a picture of Snoopy the cartoon character sleeping and making a sarcastic comment highlighting that he misread the previous post would be a waste of everyone's time.

    I don't believe FindTim wouldn't do that.

    Unticked auto renewal. Using them for CPA niches with Youtube promotion. They aren't useless to me :)

    I love how everyone thinks they are useless but then only thinks like a domainer.
