    I just bought add.lgbt and hug.lgbt for forty bucks each, I think I made a century deal, what do you think? I could get i.lgbt but some a##hole managed to get his hands over it first. Any ideas, sell it or make a website? are lgbt domains new? do you think they have a future?

    Kinda looks like a spammy extension to me that will probably be dominated and associated with the adult industry, much like the wave of .xxx domains.

    Step out of your bubble and look at them from an objective point of view.
    Do they look good, attractive, authoritative, even remotely useful in any case?

    Well I sure don't think so and I doubt anyone else does.
    Get a grasp of the real world son, 1 letter TLD's are not necessarily golden nuggets anymore - especially not with a shit extension like lgbt (I don't mean to offend homosexual people by the way lol).

    Definitely not a century deal xD

    But I guess you could use them combined with a creative idea to support the LGBT group, and promote with social media and press releases prior to some LGBT pride parades in countries that don't support them.

    Cuz we running out of time, what do you mean?
    Oh oh ohh
    What do you mean?

    Ehm, I mean that LGBT should include Q as well for the queers.

    Lesbian
    Gay
    Bi
    Trans
    (Queer)

    Also, you just wasted $80.

    What value do they add to a site? They dont rank well, do a search for any term and see if you see any odd extensions ranked well
