DomainState to be Sold via Auction


I just received an email from the administrators of, a domain forum that is now for sale. The owners have decided to sell it via auction on the site, which will be held January 13 - 15, 2010, starting with a $10,000 bid. My bet is the auction will result in a sale between $20-30,000.

Here's the email I received:


Thanks for your interest in the site, please note the following information about the sale,
