You are experiencing cognitive dissonance. It means that you are
confronted with the truth and it conflicts with what you know or want
to know about something, and that creates some distress.

Sorry if that sounded arrogant, but it wasn't intended as such.

Hear me:

I have said this repeatedly. I know people with thousands of .coms. They do NOT want to sell. It is part of an elaborate business plan. Each .com doesnt require its own plan, just like each book in a bookstore doesnt require ITS own plan. It is part of a comprehensive vision. They develop these sites. Pay others to develop these sites so long as a profit is turned. It becomes the bane of their existence, and a lucrative one.

If you understood what the major league web developers did, you might understand this.

I am not in their ranks, but I know what they have and what they pull in.

Furthermore, if it is not illegal to register thousands of domains. If they choose to pay tens of thousands of dollars a YEAR in registration fees, that is THEIR business.

They pay, so let them have the benefit.
       
End of discussion, as I see it. I am sure, however, you are not
relieved of your angst though.

That is fine. It pisses me off that other people landed better
jobs, better homes, better salaries than I have.
