I don't know that RP wouldn't be willing to pay them for the domain, though it seems apparent that he doesn't want to pay $250,000. I don't see how RP is discrediting himself or harming the current domain name owners by not giving them a quarter of a million dollars. RP has always promoted contract law as libertarian and the current domain owners are now smearing him as "unlibertarian" for utilizing the dispute arbitration option in the contract they agreed to when they obtained the domain name. Don't you think that's just a little bit hypocritical and nasty of them?
