I receive many emails from domain owners trying to sell me their domain names. 99% of the time, the domain names are not of interest to me at all. Almost all the time, I respond to let the person know. I think it is courteous. The downside to responding is that some people think this opens the door to sending me many other domain names to review. Occasionally, people will respond by asking why I don’t want the name or are otherwise rude to me for having the gall of not wanting to buy their domain name.
When you receive an outbound email offering to sell you a domain name, do you usually respond?
