    It's just not understood by most people. That's both a good and a bad thing for us (good if we're growing our portfolios, bad if we're selling on running a domain related service).

    Not sure if i've posted before but have a look at this thread I started here http://www.aussiestockforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15668 on an investment forum. Interesting to see the suspicion from these seasoned investors.

    That was pretty crazy, I can't believe these people, some are interested (albeit lack the knowledge), but it seems most are just so sceptical on it as a money making venture.

    I really couldn't believe some of the stuff that I was reading.

    i had a read , it seems while david was away making a cup of tea they all turned on him !

    Yet they happily throw money at the stock market ..... and watch it go up and then down , i am thinking it might have been a down day for some of them ?

    Yes its our cake ! i think david should give debitcard.com.au to me , i have an anz account , i think domaining is more fun and doesn't cost $500 minimum entry
