Although "Fools" is a common English word, the domain was auctioned at a lower price due to its less favorable meaning. This reflects the tendency for domains with less desirable meanings to have lower perceived value in the domain market.

Of course, it remains to be seen whether the domain king Rick Schwartz will profit significantly from Fools.com in the future.
