As you well know, many domain names are started buy people who have no intention of ever using the name, they just want, more or less, to be able to extort money from someone on down the road. "oh, you want this domain name, pay me $$$ and it's yours."
If I was RP, I wouldn't have gone this direction. I would have either negotiated a reasonable price or just let it go.
It is not extortion,it is our great free market system. You can't praise a free market system,then throw a tantrum when it doesn't work in your favor.
