Domain peddlers 30.12.2001

Because of busy fingers I accidentaly hit enter too fast when trying to get access to kaboom.dk and ended up being shown the www.kaboom.com site instead. Here I am met with a page that tells me www.kaboom.com is for sale, that and a bunch of other domains.

It seems to be a minimalistic domain name auction with the most insane prices around, and domain names including those of ski resorts, towns, and attractions - where boardwalk.com is currently valued at $ 11000!! Kaboom.com is worth $ 12500!!

I find it scarry that somebody's willing to pay $ 1000 for tampon.com - don't you?
