My one datapoint is a counterexample (with which one can prove anything,
natcherly). I recently registered realdoofus.com, after hemming and
hawing over it for about 9 months, and checking on it numerous times,
including maybe 3 times in the week preceding.
Clearly, there must not be a recognizable market for realdoofus (other
than someone's scurrilous ego promotion), or it would have been long
gone. I was surprised to get it. BTW, realdoofus.tv and realdoctor.tv
are still available. Feel free to snatch them away from me. I'll
invest a penny now and buy them from you in 10**30 years.
