    I doubt they'll ever be free to reg. Always going to get picked up on the drop even if they're never sold. I think nominet are destroying this market with the decisions they've made. It's getting bad when far worse extensions are fetching more money.

    We already have them not even making £50 on DL, and people selling bulk at £25, the gold reserve is heading into the scrap yard to be weighed in.

    Could well happen tomorrow, depending on what one of our members does. I don't think I'd bother renewing all of those...

    I think the LLL's were in a bubble, it all depended on the quality of the domain. There's loads nowadays that are meaningless with X's and W's etc.. I registered a lot of them many years back, I was regularly selling them for up to £9k a time, it was all about waiting for the right company to come along.

    I've sold 100+ decent LLL's over the years, I now only hold ~10 quality letter LLL's. They are a hard sell, they are not generic, so require a very specific buyer that typically needs to come to you, not the other way around.

    Owning a LLL years ago was like a status symbol. I remember registering my first...by hand!

    Now Ive got 1 LLL.uk left. Unless you have a decent letter combination they are nigh on impossible to sell.
