Who knows, websites get sold all the time. I've seen listings on Ebay for £20k plus, those are businesses though. Wasting a grand on a hobby site seems pretty pointless, it obviously doesnt turnover any money or he wouldn't be selling it.
The guy buying it is probably interested in the prestige it brings "I own Dakka!"
I'm halfway through a tasty arguement on that site at the moment. :mrgreen:
I work for an E-commerce company. We sell online shopping carts to people. I know online stores fairly well. I bet someone will buy DakkaDakka.com and then build an online storefront attached to it. All they have to do is clean up teh code a little bit, make a few files on there smaller to allow for better browsing, and they will make a mint.
