    I should have asked him if I could come over so we could have a cup of tea over the deal while I parked my car (see avatar) in his yard.

    interesting, the people getting scammed are the ones who are either very greedy or very naive or new to domaining. the industry is a little bloated and lets face it, is filled with unsightly characters doing some not-so-nice things. Domain parking and squatting technically is pretty bad, I mean sitting on a domain without adding value - just holding on to it with the intention of someone coming along and paying a bundle for it is a little sketchy - but there's money to be made.

    I guess that's exactly the same as buying houses and holding to them 'till someone comes and buys them for a larger amount.

    A lot of people park their domain somewhere while working on its development so it may look like it us unused.

    There is nothing wrong with buying/registering a domainname with intensions to sell it without developing. Besides 'sitting on a domain' is not for free since one has to pay for the renewals etc. It is not like sitting on a nice bench in the city park and holding a sign 'this place for rent'.
