    Brandable - any old tat

    Unique - any domain name

    Rare - as above.

    Putting it back on the shelf - I cant sell it for peanuts on here but I will pay renewals again and again.

    Offer valid until xyz - I am a dick, or I think you are a dick.

    Investment - I have just splurged on .mobi .eu .crap hoping I can pay off my debts.

    Generic domaining insults - I spent 10k on .me.uk names.

    hubby = someone I will deny knowing

    had an offer by PM = him/her on the laptop in the next room will facilitate a registrant change in order to avoid having to sell the name at the current price

    the .me.uk market is picking up = I have loads of .me.uk's and it had better bloody pick up

    BIN reduced = please buy it

    final reduction = please help me, buy it please, take it away

    could be worth something if developed = Your domain is sh*t but to tell the truth would be crude

    PM me your domains with price = Post your domains with contrived links to the requested niche in the thread and add £1k to the value

    Lmfao great thread, more please! I will have a go too:

    WANTED - Dear Newbies, Please PM me any name that you have. Please also ignore my specific instructions in the thread, don't specify a price and pm/post it instead of posting/pming it.

    Great thread, had a good laugh at the above. I'll add one...

    Client with a limited budget = it's me, I just don't want to admit I won't be offering market value.

    1. £750 offer received via PM = would accept £760 for it, have yet to receive any offers.

    2. Buyer backed out = buyer never existed.

    3. Prices valid for a limited time only = price valid until it drops.

    4. Unique content, £5 per 500 words = whatever Wikipedia says on chosen subject, mixed about a bit.

    5. Sensible offers only = hoping you'll offer way more than it's actually worth.

    - Rob

    Now that brought tears to my eyes - Probably too close to home, occasionally
    l know there been a few posted but lets not let the 'prospective' buyers off too easily,,


    "Budget xxx - x,xxx" = depending on what my dad thinks it's worth

    "Immediate Cash available" = I'll be looking to flip so your patience would be appreciated.

    "Buying entire portfolios" = That will be my 'cherrypicked' portfolio of your domains - Not your Portfolio idiot.

    "Will pay a minimum of XXX per domain" = Exactly £100 for your your very best

    Gauging interest before offering to end users = already tried and had no luck, someone please take it away from me.

    Previously received offer(s) of £___ = I should have bitten their arm off whilst I still had the chance.

    I've had great fun reading as well as posting in this thread - I still love 'theregister.co.uk' line "Biting the hand that feeds IT" (don't get time to read it very often, these days)

    TheRegister has gone seriously downhill of late. For example it's now being used as a political vehicle much more - it's annoying to read their stories and see such blatant lobby-speak (anything to do with nuclear vs "green" technologies is a good example).

    I would probably agree Inbound - they use to be topical, witty and selective - I haven't looked for years. (Now they appear too much/too wide) What the hell happened to the 6 or 8 hot topics ? they were so good at

    Still like that byline though "Biting the hand that feeds IT" - shame that original concept and direction seems to have been 'Bought'
