    Be interesting to see a sale price.

    As a slight aside, have you seen this article in the Financial Times? Meta has been ordered to sell Giphy, this quote is my favourite.

    I can confirm I no longer own this name. That's all I can confirm. ;)

    Can you confirm whether you will be taking a long luxury holiday next year?
    Buying a new car? A flat or a house? Or anything for scale? ;)

    It can’t have been much because .uk domains are worthless, everyone knows that

    I don’t see any value in the name, it’s what I’d call a domainer name, a bit like owning socialmedia.uk

    Michael sold his name because one of the richest companies in the World rebranded themselves as Meta and wanted to protect their IP
