Yep, concur with the others. What’s the difference from buying a piece of “real world” property and just sitting on it?

And in some cases it’s also about being creative. I’m sitting on a few domains myself, short 5 or 6 letter .com’s, that don’t really mean anything but sound kind of funky, and I’m taking the chance (at an investment of $10/year each) that someone might want to buy them in the future.

I sold one domain a year or so back, vidcrowd.com, for a couple of grand. I did have half an idea of what I might potentially use it for myself, but then the offer came and and so decided to sell. Seems like the current owner hasn’t done anything with it, so who knows perhaps he’s sitting on it too?
