---- Domain name speculators and the domain name aftermarket

Sonny, what you and most others are supporting is about purchasing a domain or few domains for the sake of own use. It might or might not be used.
I am not against it.
The problem is in purchasing 100's & 1000's of selected domains so that the person who realy needs it can not have it at the price of the registrar.
People who buy in that volume usually ARE putting the domain to use. Advertisers pay money to show their ads on domain parking programs - they acquire targeted customers through direct navigation, and the domain owners get a cut of those advertising dollars. Much as we all love to hate parked pages full of ads, they're part of the economy...
Few people buy domains just to keep others from having them - if they don't turn a profit they will drop when the registration expires.
