Hi. I want to buy a domain but it's owned by this mysterious company Vertical Axis. I've written to their listed email address, but they don't seem to ever check it. I've emailed them a couple of times and they never respond. Has anyone had any luck with these guys before?

Best approach is a concrete offer in the subject line.
If that doesn't get a response increase the offer to you level of ability or interest.
If you don't get a response your offer is likely unacceptable and will simply be ignored. VA owns quite a few domains and if they replied to every inquiry they would be wasting a great deal of time. Many inquierers simply have no clue about aftermarket values. Others simply have bad attitudes. If the domain is good enough VA can afford to wait it out.
They sell, or at least sold in the past, but they also tend to overprice their holdings IMHO. Then again, with domains, a fair price is sometimes what one is willing to pay to own the address they most desire. Still not an easy job to peg a fair market value.
