I Need Your Thoughts On A Domain Name

10 replies
Hi,

As you may already know English isn't my native tongue, so it's very difficult for me to find the right expressions/idioms, especially with domain names.

So my question is:

What do you associate with the term "dumpee"?

What site would you expect when you saw dumpee.com?

Thank you for your thoughts!

Eddie

    The first (and only) thing that springs to mind is someone who has been dumped by an ex-partner. They are the "dumper" and you are the "dumpee".

      Thank you!

      Exactly, that's what I thought.

      Is this a common expression? Has it a negative connotation?

        "Dumpee" isn't a common expression used here in the US. You will hear people using the term "dumped" for a breakup, but I can't say I've ever heard "dumpee."

        And yeah, I'd say it has a negative feel to it.

        It's not something I've ever heard of before. It's just what came to mind. It's definitely not something that I would search for.

          it could be construed as being "Dumpy" as in dumpy screwdriver .....or someone who is short and plump.

          My thoughts anyway.

            In Australia, dumpee/dumpy can mean 3 things!
            1 - the dumper verses the dumpee in a breakup
            2 - a dumptruck is often referred to as a dumpee
            3 - would describe a bathroom habit (to put it nicely!)
            What will be on your dumpee.com?
