    Hello Shane,

    Time rolls on and .COM valuations continue accelerating at a dizzying pace. We just wonder how much better off the people that remain investing in quality .COM properties are than people including Frank Schilling who has dumped a ton of money into the GTLD fiasco, which continues to dupe investors. This time next year the .COM Asset Class will show ever increasing Valuations for the really savvy investors. Thanks for this post it very clearly demonstrates where the real Smart money continues to invest.

    Gratefully, Jeff Schneider (Contact Group) (Metal Tiger)
