On a few occasions now I've approached owners of domains (that are up for sale) with an offer. With the exception of one that I subsequently bought, all have come back with insane counter offers. For example, I thought it might be quite nice to own my surname .co.uk. My surname is not a common one and .org.uk was still available, as was .me and many other less popular extensions. Equally, my surname has no alternative meaning. I made an offer of low £xxx and the guy came back asking for £5000. I can get my surname as a dot com for £1000 on sedo through a "buy it now" listing and I pointed this out to the seller. He was not willing to budge. I didn't even bother continuing. And this is my experience with almost every domain I've tried to buy - vastly unrealistic asking prices. So, is this something you guys do intentionally? Or do you genuinely believe the prices you quote? In the end I bought the org.uk address for 3 quid.
