Um...hows about...say...eleven million and change? No?



I have an idea for a web sight, kind of weird (like me) but it would be interesting to see if it could fly. Not sure how to go about doing such a thing though.

With that previous quote from you Lush of the $BILLIONS generated in the USA, I would think it to be good value.......................... BUT I prefer the word EROTICA myself. Porn sounds cheap and horrid and nasty, far from the elegance of the Lush site (yeah and I creep too!!)

Went for $9million. I am sure the type-in's alone would be worth $1million per year, let alone what they can do with it. And there was me registering corn.com instead back in 1992....d'oh d'oh!

Yes, I'd like to have had the foresight for erotica.com all those years ago.

I would guess that's a seriously good deal for the new owners, especially considering Youtube sold for 2.2bn. That did come with millions of users already though.
