    While I'm not in agreement with Snoopy on .au, credit where credit is due. He was one of a small number of domainers who saw an opportunity at the time you mentioned and took it with both hands.

    If Snoopy's current portfolio is his latest performance then the crowd it chanting for an encore. :cool:

    We're looking for a stand up comedian for the next DNTrade meetup. Are you up for it, Snoopy?

    I'm willing to do a routine with member Robert. I can be Laverne and he can be Shirley.

    Have written a small script,

    [snoopy stands at window]
    [robert enters room]

    Robert (angry): Coles just sold me out of date milk, they should lose their accreditation to sell milk!

    Snoopy (shouts at Robert): You are wrong Robert, the problem is simply that all milk tastes terrible, why do you drink milk anyway? I only drink coconut water.

    Robert: You do not know anything about milk Snoopy! When is the last time you drank milk, do you drink milk regularly? I drink milk 3 times per day.

    Snoopy: Robert, Milk has been in overall decline since the Pura incident of 2012. The milk is contaminated and the situation will only get worse! It's poison!

    [snoopy storms out]
    [robert storms out]


    [end of scene]

    Gold! You're hired. If we combine Robert's experience as a performer and manager of a major record label signed band with your comedic genius and sickening number of generic one word .coms, we'll make a killing.

    I can see it now ...

    Such a technical glitch not being able to reply to emails. I'm sure a developer can fix that.

    Snoopy, it’s been pointed out to me some of the cool deals you were involved in back in the day, that I wasn't aware of, and they are legitimately impressive. So, I take back the rubbish I said earlier in this thread.

    However, if you command respect I also hope you can give it without the sarcastic jabs. As a successful newcomer in this space, I honestly believe you are undervaluing the power and potential of not only .com.au but the upcoming .au(.) Obviously a lot of us don't like your negative attacks on the Australian domain name market.

    In terms of your script, I've written a few screenplays for my Science Fiction novel (Silverbirch.com) and I think it needs a little work. Perhaps we should employ characters from famous sitcoms, like you suggest. But I would recommend Richie and The Fonz over the characters mentioned so far. Probably less yelling too.

    I was assuming no-one actually owned a motorbike like Fonzie's 1949 Triumph Trophy TR5 Scrambler (may I suggest characters from the Peanuts instead?)

    People have been making predictions of .com.au's upcoming boom times for as long as I can remember and it has never happened. The market simply doesn't have the level of demand required.

    .au will do damage, just like .uk did. It is adding a heap of low quality supply to a market that is already weak.

    I seem to be looking further down the track than yourself.

    You missed the "unstable path ahead" sign.

    I agree to disagree at this point. And you can be The Fonz, if you like.
