Yeah, I had that happen today too when @silentg opened up a topic about a .com.
Ended up I owned the .ca

@rlm I see you point domains straight at godaddy as well?

I do that too whenever I don't want to advertise myself as the domain owner.
I usually put a code at the end so I can track it.

In this case I would have done this...

godaddy.com/en-ca/domains?parked=aquire.ca

I like doing that because it forces the potential owner to contact godaddy and then godaddy charges the commission to the domain buyer instead of me.

A lot of my private domains are parked like that or similar.

Someone certainly wasn't the spelling bee champ was he? :D

Lol, no, I don't point to godaddy, try not to use godaddy for anything but accepting a pushed domain. That is someone else's misspell you were looking at.

First thing I checked was who owned the .ca. Knew it was @rlm Great domain

Correction on the price: It's actually $200,000 (@MapleDots - can you correct the price in the title?)
Micro Acquire CEO said he put the extra zero for fun. I don't think it's funny. He loses credibility.
