    We have probably all had lowball offers for domains with comments attached such as

    "I am only a poor student"

    or

    "we are a charity / non profit"

    How about this comment when I declined a recent lowball offer...

    "Ah that’s a shame, I really like the domain as the name is after my late friend who sadly passed away this year"

    Recent declined lowball offer :cool:

    "I cannot afford those prices – I can offer you £129 which 10 times the cost of the renewal – I appreciate that the mistake was nothing to do with you but I also feel that a 1000% increase is more than fair.

    That is a shame. Please let me know if you change your mind."

    "
    the .net .com etc... have all already been sold, I’d be extremely surprised if you got a buyer for this

    This is one of my recent favourites:

    I think i am so crazy that paying so much for a domain. summer is here, i don't even have an electric fan. if i am a rich person, i will buy it immediately, not need to be so slow. please forgive me.

    Negotiation 101: get seller onside...

    "I thought this was just an arbitrary amount you´ve assigned to this domain .... as is the practice of domain squatters."

    "I have a peg leg and seasonal affective disorder. Please transfer your domain to me immediately. It could be the pick-me-up I need!"

    Just kidding.

    I did used to own a place name though, and I'd get lowball offers, followed by "you don't really live there do you!" comments when I refused, as if we had to exchange contracts on home soil.
