Huge Critic of Scientology is getting rid of all his Websites, Blogs and Forum on EBAY

Not that I even wanted to sell my prized possessions, I wanted to see what they were worth and how much chatter could come my way.

I also needed to become a huge asshole as "Fred Durks", and I needed to kill off the character. I didn't care for him to much as of recently, so it was time to move on.

Currently I get over 3,000 unique visitors a day to my sites. That is not even including the Blogs or Message board which actually probably get more.

These are good Websites, Blogs and Forums for anyone that wants a lot of traffic. Plus they are great domain names and the Blog(s) itself is always at the top of every Blog search for searches such as "Scientology", "L Ron Hubbard", "Tom Cruise" etc.

Most of the the domain names are 2-3 years old. They all have a Page Rank of 4 or 5. The SEO (Search Engine Optimization) on them is done beautifully (By myself). All the graphics on the sites are all mine created in Photoshop.

You will have the exclusive rights to everything on the websites including all the images, videos, articles and all concept ideas plus I will help you in any way getting setup.

This is what EBAY did:
