Lorand, are you honestly open minded to purchasing a domain for $50k or higher? I personally wouldn't spend over $1k however that is just me.

Nevertheless it's a 2 char domain, 2 letters, so It has some value
I'm not prepared as of yet to to pay 50k for it, but in the very near future I will be, however I'm not willing to pay much more than 50k for it.
AdWatcherJon: obviously you aren't familiar with the domain market. Some of these prime domain names can earn that much easily in a couple days or less.
Lorand: my best guest would be you are looking at 50k minimum for a domain like mb.com. Domains with the kind of scores it gets on overture would easily go for 10k, now factor in it is a 2 letter .com and has many acronyms ( http://www.acronymfinder.com/af-quer...act&Acronym=mb ), I think 50k would be a starting point. Especially since the owner isn't a domain novice.

these guys also have a contract with what used to be Applied Semantics and now is DomainPark (google). They require over 1 million page views monthly... these guys are earning loads of money from such prime domain names. I doubt there is much incentive to sell unless the offer is one that 'cannot be refused.'
I agree with you kohashi. But as I've seen, the domain just "sits' there, maybe waiting for someone (maybe like me) to make an offer. Altough it's not listed as "For Sale", I'm sure they're willing to sell it for the right price.
But as I said, I'm not prepared as of yet to pay that amount. My company is not that developed...
they are probably earning loads of cash from that parked page.... it isn't sitting idly, it is earning lots of money. And my guess of 50k, is only a guess.... you can always try and buy it, but don't get discouraged if they ignore you, such high profile sites probably get many emails and they may not be interested in selling unless you really do offer that 'unrefusable offer.'
