Yep! It's happened a few times and that's when I have to calculate the ROI.

It makes you really scrutinize how much you "love" that name.

I have not seen this. Then again, I purchased a couple of dozen domains years and years and years ago that I keep when it was easier to get one without it being called a premium.

Not really - although we own over 200 domain names and many from local complexes - when we want one we just get as close to what we need as possible - we've never bought a so called "premier" because in our estimation there is no such thing anymore

Sure have. Parked domains any of us snatch up and think someday. Those websites need weeding, feeding, watering and we are already data input technicians right? Information vending machines, all of the sites are for property listings to slice and dice. For area information, the real estate process explained right?
