Marcus Shöppenflagger of Austria is upset his track record of stupendous domain sales remains unseen.

The Austrian mega domainer began trading domains in September 1999, a few months short of the new millennium. He quickly turned this into a full time profession in his native city of Vienna.

“When started, it was the Y2k era, worked as computer programmer Austrian firm Das Kode. First year on Commodore 64 and then, professional PC. I discover domains, Austrian friends went for beer and sausage but stayed one night programm. Had 8 beer and no sausage, register first domain, then no stop since!”

Since then, Marcus Shöppenflagger has sold more than 45,000 domains, some in the ten figures, he claims. These Austrian Schilling domain sales are registered with the Austrian bureau of Finance, that issues annual taxes to all Austrian citizens.

Shöppenflagger is upset that domain sleuth, George Kirikos, has not uncovered his biggest domain sales yet.

Love Theo, but don't love the mixing of fake and real news, even if that is part of the concept. Also, bonus points for mentioning a Commodore 64 (which Theo knows I'm more than fond of) and of course for mentioning George.

I agree. Sometimes it can be a bit misleading if you don’t know that it is just satire…. Although it does say on the articles if it is satire or not but some people just don’t know or don’t see that part on the article.

Maybe they should do what Babylon Bee has done. They created a real news article site called “NotTheBee” so make it less confusing.
