Site For Sale?

i just received a rather interesting email from some guy wanting to buy my site.

Hello.

I’m interested in purchasing your website.

I’m willing to offer $5000 for it, payable through PayPal or by wire transfer.

As soon as we’ve detailed information about the site and come to an agreement, I’ll be willing to go through with the sale immediately.

I expect to get this done within 2-4 days.

I apologize if my proposal isn’t appealing, not timely or doesn’t correspond to the site’s current revenue.

naturally, i just fired off a reply thanking him for the offer, but that i wasn’t interested in selling my site off just now… still, i guess it’s kind of flattering.

i’ve had this site for longer than my marriage lasted, and the day i lose it is gonna suck… then again, nothing lasts forever, right?

  6. foo, sounds like an spam email to check if your email is “clean”. You should of ignored it. Look out for any more strange emails and make sure images are disabled in your email client.

  7. damn, now that you mention it, it totally smells like SPAM — fuck me, why did i reply?

    g’damnit.

    oh, and i let gotfoo/alphafilter slide away simply because i really didn’t have to time to keep 3-4 sites going – along with working full time, a wife, kid, etc… was just too damn much, mang.

    damn buddy, kinda funny that you remember them though — feels like it’s been quite awhile since i’ve thought of those sites. lol

  8. Also anything talking about wire transfers == spam in my brain. But that’s years of internet cynicism I guess :)

  11. I remember the good old times al’right. I remember the FooDesktop, the FooForum, the times then you posted CF-code and CSS-snippets.
    We were all into DHTML back then. Damn, I remember the day you posted that your sister got a baby. Sheeesh it was a long time ago. :)
