    You must be new to domaining if you think that people mentioning a domain on here is outing it.

    The only people that go on websites like DomainLore are people that understand what domains like that are used for. Everyone that's looking at it already has it 'outed' in their mind. It's not like some secret that you make it out to be.

    Keep digging. First you're making it more difficult for Acorn members to sell their catches, now you're calling the end customers thick?

    Do you think thats a positive for Acorn members overall, or a negative? Perhaps acorn member Darren will now "give a shit" given it was his domain we're now not going to buy?

    Why are you not going to buy it. Because your client has saw people discussing how doing what you intended to do was likely copyright infringement or something?

    It appears you're just passing the blame on. "You guys 'outed' and 'discussed' how this sort of thing is breaking copyright laws in most cases and now I can't generate sales to people who didn't know any better and thought I would get them #1 rankings in 5 days for $47. Thanks a bunch!"

    I'd prefer to be cautious after watching someone become a £40k bag holder with helptobuy.

    Maybe I'm being overly cautious but its my budget to spend and my choice.

    The person buying it knew there was a large risk buying it.

    Absolutely, but the risk was increased when domainers tried to get it as much publicity as they could. There was no need for that.
