I think it might be time to get my teeth checked by a certain profession...

Re: TBR Musings - December 23, 2020

Just a little public service announcement.

Back in 2016 I hand-registered 9 domains that week (I just checked and FUJ.ca was the only TBR one and it was $16.88 at NP) and amazingly 4 of them have sold, but of the 5 that didn't I am letting the following 3 beaters go:

fuj.ca
jqy.ca
ylj.ca

In the 4 years I have held these, I have:

1) Never received a single inquiry or even a $20 min offer.
2) In the last year I have hit up every company, organization, and entity remotely affiliated with these 3 letters and have not received a single response back.

So to me, they're absolute beaters and more than deserving of being dropped, but as the TBR has a "glittering effect" on 3-letter domains like this, I wanted my fellow denizens of DN to get the scoop.

If you still want to buy them, more power to you and maybe you'll be luckier than I was.

There can't be that many organizations with those letters in their name?

Yep, like ZERO real businesses. A few clubs and orgs, and that's about it.

One of the only businesses that might have qualified actually CHANGED their name after I outbounded.

I see another of my old LLL drops has found its way back to the TBR... not a good week for 3-letters.

Wow, pretty slim pickings on this week's TBR and it reminds me of the part where the Grinch leaves crumbs much too small for the other Who's mouses.

The green hand is RLM, the crumb is the viable portion of the TBR list, and I'm the mouse.

I'm known as the Grinch at home, so why not here too...

And isn't that image just so apropos, with me sneaking in for a TBR scrap, and then you grabbing it away from me?

1,000 words indeed.

When it comes to auctions, sometimes that's precisely the point. The smaller & fewer the crumbs I leave behind, the smaller & fewer the rodents will be.

Don't expect my heart to grow 3 sizes any time soon.  :lol:

To some people, apparently.

The only notable one I saw was Dentistry, and it's not even that great.

Just so you know I put a little link in the quotes so from now on it will take you to the original post when you click the link in the quote.

HeHe.... Am I talking in circles or does that make sense?

PS. Works on all quotes made from here forward.

Looks like WHC/Siber has found their way again...too bad the pickings were so meager :(

@DomainRecap

I blew off auctions to ski today.  So if the crumbs were bigger than usual, you're welcome. :-)

Nope, as there were still some other Grinches running around stealing my crumbs, but hope you had a nice time.
