I don’t know if it’s just my perception, but lately, it almost seems that people who are “public” domain investors have become more civil. By “public,” I am referring to everyone from domain forum participants to bloggers, commenters, and anyone else who publicly discusses domain names.
Personally, I have been visiting forums less frequently (only really spend time visiting DNForum and Domain Boardroom these days), but when a flare up occurs, someone typically sends me an email about it, usually to ask for my perspective on something or I suppose to gawk at the post. This hasn’t happened in quite some time.
There are dozens or more ways to make money with domain names. There are thousands of personalities in the business who are trying to make money. However, it seems to me that people are being less antagonistic lately, and I think it’s a positive sign for this business. When you focus on your own business and don’t spend time arguing with others, you can really achieve positive results.
Am I just out of touch with things in my bubble? What’s your perception?
