Irony: A member named "carguy" advises "never communicate your number to a domainer" in the same thread that the domainguy advises that "buying better domains is not like buying used cars."
ironic indeed, and not Alanis Morissette irony either; although for the life of me, I can't find domainguy's post. :¦
But your domain acquisition methodology will fail miserably in so many cases, as confirmed by so many comments shared between myself and my fellow domainers, that I have to advise: Stick to giving advice about buying and selling cars, carguy.
Ha, well, as I stated, I'm batting 1000 when it comes to MY methodologies, but I'm also in the lower end market of the domain names I've picked up, none have ever reached 6 figures and none probably ever will as the fun for me now is being creative with naming and less generic *all encompassing* names(photography.com, cars.com, sports.com...). But if I ever did have a situation where my emails weren't getting replied to and I needed the domain name, then I could implement your method from a different email address. But I wouldn't ever start with it. I'm not sure where most people on here fall into in terms of the domains they're trying to purchase, but the vibe I got was in the 4 figure range. I could be way off though.
