Why is the merk.com domain in play?

 

Iíve had this domain since 1990 (I mention that so that you know Iím not some domain squatter), with only one request to purchase it. In the last few months, Iíve had 5 requests, most recently a paper mail solicitation from Australia!

 

Possible buyers? I know of a financial company with a founder named Merk, but thatís about it. Are all these brokers trying to buy the domain to sell to the Merk company for big money? If so, Merk representatives, please email domain-sale@merk.com, and bring your checkbook :-). And be prepared to start with 6 trailing zeroes in the $USD offer.
