What should I do with the domain of a failed website idea?

I tried a website idea and it just did not work out.

It was sort of a “goodsearch” type concept with a large percentage of the ad revenue to support a certain childhood illness. Anyway, it never really worked – partially because I was less than enthusiastic about being what was essentially an affiliate marketing site so I never promoted the site very much.

So… should I just let the domain die?
Or… should I put a “This Domain For Sale” link on it?

The only value the site really has is: 1) decent name; 2) it has aged (e.g. not in the sandbox if you know what I mean.)

The last time I just let a domain die, just for fun I went to the site and it is now a “big daddie” parking lot site and for sale. The weird thing about this is – the domain was based on my name — sort of like mrJones.com
