Thanks for the reply.
Yes, I understand your point of view.
No, I am not looking to sell the domain, though I might consider a short term lease. The domain name I have has a very strong relationship to search engines, and is probably worth in the mid 6 to low 7 figures right now.
I have noticed that many of new search engines are forced to adopt awkward domain names, which are difficult to remember, due to the cost of domain names (though MS apparently was able to secure Bing for low 5 figures). Given the attractiveness of the domain, I am seeking a search engine development group that would like an excellent platform, with great name recognition, to test out their search engine. So I am looking for one or more search engine development projects in progress.
Therefore, I was going to offer this proposition to development groups, but I am unable to find any forums that are dedicated to research. Most seem to be dedicated to SEO/SEM. If you know of any forums, I would very much appreciate it.
