The domain in question I’ve not mentioned to protect the registrant of the domain as I don’t to know whether the registrant send it to me or somebody else. I’m amazed when it mentioned that they have an algorithm that identifies potential buyers. Certainly, the algorithm is not up to its standards as I don’t think I’m in need of this particular domain name. I’ve noticed that when you buy more domain names you get more such spam emails related to domains. I’m very much clear that before entering Domaining I never received such emails in my inbox.

I think, these spammers should start learning domaining in an ethical manner so that the domaining community as a whole are not labelled as spammers or cyber squatters.

  1. I don’t think spammers will ever learn any ethics, else they wouldn’t be labeled as spammers at first ;)

    Secondly, sometimes I see these spammers do some benefit for us in a way that let”s say you have Drop.com and they will email you to buy Drops.com from them and in actual the domain is getting available in next 2-3 days. This way you get alert and place backorders for the domain. Rarely it helps and most of the time it’s annoying :D

  2. So far I have not received that kind of helpful spam email. And, they may not learn domain ethics but I bet it’s important to learn ‘can spam act’* rules.
