CNET has featured this post “Meet the ‘Mann’ who registered 14,962 domains in 24 hours”
According to CNET:
For years, Mike Mann has been snapping up Internet domain names and selling them off to the highest bidder.
“I’m just really greedy,” said Mann, a man no one would describe as modest. “I want to own the world.”
“We have a filter, but I’m the world’s most efficient human filter for this sort of thing,” said Mann, true to form. “I don’t think anyone can read huge lists of domain names as quickly as I can and understand what they’re reading. I’m a pattern reader. It’s a huge pain in the ass, but it’s what I do for a living.”
Do you think this is good if someone who has lots of money, snaps all names and sell it to you. Do you think there should be a limit of buying domains at a time?
For example: If there should be any restriction of buying domains within 7 days, or 30 days. One could register maximum of 50 domains within a week.
Do you want such rule or restriction on domain buying, so that you won’t got into problem when you search for some domains and you won’t get one?
How would you feel if you searched for 10000 domains and won’t got a single domain for your use? or You will support Mike Mann for his success in domaining.
If 10000 Mann are entering in this type domaining they will buy out many domains. Let’s calculate how much domain will be taken away within 1 year of period.
Within 24 hours 1 Mann buys 14962 domains
In 1 year 1 Mann buys 14962 x 365 = 5461130 domains
In 1 year 10000 Mann buys 5461130 x 10000 = 54611300000 domains
Now Let’s consider this is not possible. So now we will round up them first.
After rounding 50000000000 (5 billion) domains per year taken out by these so called “Domain Mann”. Sorry may be it should ”Domain Menn”.
