I can't fully describe how much I dislike (hate) people or organizations who buy url's just to sit on them hoping they can coerce people who are really interested in using that url to pay a much higher price to obtain it. If it were up to me, it would be illegal to sit on domain names, if you have no intention to use them, and are only sitting on them to extort money from people who actually want to use any particular url.
I have a company name that I have used for the last 10+ years, but it is not something that really makes any money, but I suppose it could some time in the future, and various people or organizations have tied up the .com url for my company name, and constantly send me emails offering to sell the domain name to me. I usually ignore their emails, but occasionally, I send them the nastiest email I can come up with, just to voice my hatred for what they are doing.
