    Everything is explained in title, so is it or not worth buying and what is the best practice to use it? Should I use it for blog in my blog network or do just 301 redirect to moneysite? PR is stable with a backlink from strong .edu domain

    If its ranking for any of your money keywords then 301 redirect it to your money site and your money site will then take over it's positions if its higher then its own.

    If its not ranking, then yes add it to your blog network, and as always leave no footprints, use different server, cms, etc.

    Cheers!

    In that case you have a powerful 301 redirect site!

    How much is it?

    Let me paraphrase your question for a little more context; 'Is a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow worth buying?'
    Yep, if the price is right :)

    No, I prefer my monkeys well away from Paypal, where the Paypal scruffs can't finger my monkeys.

    All depends. If it is free, pick it up and 301 redirect it! If another person is selling it, then you might want to reconsider.

    Someone was quicker. Probably someone who was reading this thread lol (because it was dropped 11 days ago and nobody cared)
    It was too easy, I wrote everything except the domain name....

    At least I've learn something...
