    The flames in the flippa.com: It's alive! thread are very instructional, but the responses from the SitePoint founders are amazing. They really don't care if their customers stay or leave. This is the kind of short-sighted thinking you typically see with first-time entrepreneurs!

    I agree. I can't believe what the admins wrote.

    Why do they had to ruin something that was great?

    Arrogance and greed.

    This action on their part is creating, overnight, a new set of competitors for SitePoint.

    The SitePoint owners finally started listening to their customers and acting on their feedback: YES, we are listening to you… I promise!

    Some other people are trying to beat them; although they should have a better plan and name that isn't the same like the original one
    SiteFlippa - Buy and Sell Websites | Recent Auctions

    Well, if I have to choose between Flippa & SiteFlippa I prefer Flippa

    I discovered a couple days ago that the seller can force the buyer to pay all or part of the fee.

    One of the auctions I BINed earned me a 2nd invoice -- from Flippa!

    It wasn't a lot of money, but I was quite annoyed at the surprise.

    After the sale, Flippa sent me an invoice for an additional $5. I was unpleasantly surprised.
