Not really. The excitement is still there - it is just that the focus has moved from the domaining business being a relatively small scale one concentrated on .com to one that now encompasses the gTLDs and ccTLDs.
In my view the domain dialogue has matured. The excitement is largely gone.
Most of the stuff that was domain tasted/kited is now being released as tasters and kiters have to adopt a more rational (as opposed to blanket registration of every dropped domain) approach. Part of that, based on domain registration trends, may be due to the reality that most non generic tasted/kited domains have limited lifetimes governed by link decay.
All the good stuff has long since be secured.
Many domainers that once were here probably spend more time on other fora now. It is a business but it still has its excitement. Though the market itself is moving from an irrational boom market to a more rational market where domainers have to think before registering. However judging the domaining business by the frequency of posting and level of traffic in this forum might lead one, wrongly, to despair.
Is the excitement gone? Is the domain honeymoon over?
The real fun with .com is just about to begin.
