Remembering Halvarez and Where he is Today.

Morning Folks!!

Those that forget history are destined to repeat history.

So let's remember Halvarez and that fiasco and the cover-up that followed. Where is Halvarez today? Wouldn't you like to know who is employing this guy?

See Halvarez faked you out of much more than domains and money. He robbed you of your TIME, EFFORT and OPPORTUNITY. None of which can ever be replaced. A crime against each during a unique opportunity in time.

So I am sure those that covered it up would like to forget. I won't let them and either should you. Halvarez did not work alone. He had accomplices and help. He was supported by CORRUPTION. To this day I believe there were multiple companies involved. I believe it was wider spread than anyone knows. It was a 'Culture' of lies and deceit. It was how 'Business' was done. Make no mistake, he did not act alone. He took the fall because the other companies might have collapsed. That's what I believe to my CORE!

Here is a link to the many articles I wrote at the time and your comments.

Forgetting is the real crime! And for the record. I was never in any of those auctions. I never participated. So I look at it as the damage it did to many individuals and to the industry as a whole. How much it robbed so many of you at a very important stage. You can forgive, but you can NEVER EVER forget!

Have a GREAT Day!

Phones on Fire. Phone Bidding HOT! Ricks Personal Picks for the Auction.

Morning Folks!!

Now that folks see that nearly 60% of every domain at the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. is NO RESERVE and there are some DEALS to be had, our phone registration page is now the busiest page on our website!

We can handle up to 10 phone bidders on any single lot. Thse bidders must be registered by next Friday October 5th to be included. Once we have 10 phone bidders on any particular domain, we will cut off the signups. So if you are really serious about getting a bargain, there should be a sense of urgency in your actions. You can't wait until the last minute and be included. Sorry.

Tuesday we closed auction submissions early as we had more contracts out than slots we really wanted to fill. So I can post the final list this Friday instead of just closing submissions. That gives you more time to research the domains and I can tell you there is gold in them thar hills. Domains that meet my threshold of a 10x-100x upside when you look at it thru my eyes and how I look at domains. 6 figure domains that can be bought for a few grand. Domains that Fortune 500 companies can use in an advertising campaign.

Now that the contracts are signed and I can sit back and look at what I have put together. Check out lot #140 with no reserve. Some I don't like. But there are some there I really like and I think others may just see a few names that have value. and DUH! No Reserve. $1 takes them. Maybe. Doubful. No way. CONTEST!

Lot #104 a city name for $1000 reserve. Are you kidding? BARGAIN! Somebody could flip for $10k or hold out for more.

Lot #105 It's not $1MM. It's not even $500k. It's not $250k. It's not even half that as a reserve. It's a great domain. Will a domainer buy it? Long shot. But an end user could gobble it up if we get the word out.

Lot#106 (No Reserve) Somebody is going to be the tool shed for that market. The next Adam Dicker. Then again Maybe Adam Dicker will not allow that. Who knows?

Lot#111 (No Reserve) It's a business. It may be passe for some, but it is still a viable business and this proves it:

Lot#112 (Aggressively Priced) and mean aggresively if you want to make a dent in a market. It's another business in a domain name.

Lot#114 (Low Reserve) You don't buy yesterday you go for tomorrow. With self driving Google cars release this week, smart glasses on the horizon. It's called investing for a reason. You bet on a hunch.

Lot#119 (Opportunity knocking) Another domain that can change your destiny.

Lot#120 and 7400 August type ins (Greatly Reduced) This domain is about 50% off what it has been listed for in the past. Another business in a domain. Another category you can own.

Lot#141 (No Reserve) Imagine ME picking a .CO!! But this one has meaning and is a good use of .CO. A natural use.

I may do this again. I just picked a handful. But I saw something in every domain I picked. I don't use Estibot, I use my gut. But somebody plugged my list into Estibot yesterday and the resuts suprised me on both ends of the spectrum. It has helpful info but nothing can substitute for the gut and knowing what has value and what does not. But there are sleepers on this list that can be huge.

Like always all the mouths will come out and say how shitty this is or that is but not one of them will be among the 350 core domainers because they look at things differently. Some see opoortunity and some see nothing. I can only pick from the pool of domains out there and are submitted.

I have never 'Handicapped' domains before. But I wanted to give you a little window into my picking process. How I think and what I do to pick domains. Why? Because so many of the domains that I see out there are pigeon shit. PURE pigeon shit. Those folks will probably curse me out and tell me what a crappy list.

Folks are always complaining that I don't give examples of what I consider domains of value. So here is a list. Not all have value to ME. But I have to look at things through many sets of eyes. John Jones for example.

I have been as transparent as possible. I listed each and every domain as they were selected and the contracts came in. I did no favors. I just tried to make this puppy work and on October 8th I/WE get the report card.

This is the SEMI-FINAL list. Results and everything else and I PROMISE a RESULT or it is ALL on me! I will take 100% responsibility for any failure. But I have a 3 year and a 3 phase program and I intend to have a success with your help!

I might write about what I see in some of the other lots as time goes on. Just to illustrate what I see and why I see it.

If you only effort is to try and rip apart what we are doing, you only hurt yourself. So have at it.
