    Porn.com was sold for only $9 million and it's even better than sex.com, in my opinion.

    Apparently some people make millions on domain parking. I don't really understand where they get so much traffic (other than direct traffic), since search engines don't index parked domains.

    domains are like virtual real estate. much like a vacant lot in the middle of an expensive city, an empty parked domain is still worth piles of money.

    I remember back in the dotcom boom days when the owner from Earthlink,com sold business.com for 6 million dollars. It's probably worth 10 times that amount now.

    Not a waste at all. They will get huge parking revenue while the domain continues to appreciate in value.
