Thank you. While I possess no valid letters to trail behind my name, I do enjoy words having always been a reader. But working with domains this past year has opened my eyes to something about them that I now enjoy in a way I had never done before. Perhaps its the ability to "own" them or just that I have been forced to look more closely not at just the information they transmit, but the nature of the word itself. I saw the forest, now I see the trees and I want to hug them.
Thank you for your first comment. If you had not made it I might have stumbled along for some time not realizing the garden I was in. I just looked at your profile and a few of your many lists, including "spam", and I think I get a little better what's going on here.

So, you're a bunch of SPAMNazis, huh? Cool, I like this place more and more and can completely identify with that attitude, dispite the first impression I may have given. Sorry. I understand how my profile could have been seen to go beyond a description and into advertising.
Yes, I do have a business interest here in both research and finding possible customers, but I also do my very best to play by the rules and have edited my profile to reflect this sentiment. :-)

Ouch! That hurts and I think is rather harsh of you. I have posted no links and not tried to sell anything.... please reconsider your opinion or let me know why you think I have nothing to offer???
nielsencl commented on the word bankrupture
I had never heard of this word until I found it as an expired domain name. While not used very much, I liked it and now own it. It seems as thought it is becoming more popular. That is more people are searching for it as time goes on.

Welcome, then. I have a penchant for slapping new arrivals with meat substitutes so don't take it personally.
There are certainly interesting issues about what makes a domain name good or not, how much punch a word packs and how, which cannons are lit by the touchpaper of morphology, etc. We do talk about that stuff here. By all means.

The only external link is in the profile 'Website' field, which is kosher. Despite the commercial overtones I think that's on the right side of the law, today*.
Chris, more as a consideration of community mores than a rule, I think folks would appreciate it if you toned down the promotion. That said, welcome to Wordnik!
*Our definition of spam is mercurial and we reserve the right to be erratic.
Your one list, your first comment and your profile - which contains two links, and a pitch - are all about promoting your business. Not a promising start.
SPAM (in my opinion).
