    Did you ever think such a high profile 'A Hu*h' domain would drop? Qu*t.co.uk seems to have just been caught.

    I saw it on DL, staggered my polling throughout the day for it (at the wrong times of course) ... Within 10 minutes it had dropped. Que Sera Sera

    Not for the sake of £4 - selling it, he would have easily got a tenner :)

    Whether he does or doesn't I honestly doubt that was the reason it dropped.

    It's like scrapping your car when the new reg comes out - it doesn't happen

    probably just human error

    if you leave every renewal to day before for whatever reason, to entice offers, wind people up, short of cash, whatever it might be, you're going to screw up occassionally

    maybe he needed to go hospital, went on lash and slept in, who knows

    nice catch, congrats to whoever 'snared'

    Seems his 'renewing last day' method has bitten him on the backside :) Nice catch. I know most people don't even bother chasing A Hugh's domains but I suspect they will now.

    If he stuck it on domainlore it would be guaranteed to make a few hundred at very least, so this is just silly I'm sorry to say.

    .uk wont make .co.uk worthless anyway, if you're a brand and you want to be "quit.uk" you're going to want the co.uk too.

    There are people on this forum who actually believe that isn't true. Amazing.

    Andy is just playing with us, dude seems like he has a sense of humor and this is just him wiggling his wang saying look how big it is.

    However go chase his names, take the gamble ;)

    I think what it is, is that you get so used to seeing that TAG with a premium name and therefore = ignore.

    How it came to not being renewed is probably something we'll never know but maybe the catcher will get a surprise email......

    If it dropped within 10 minutes after midnight then that's why. I have noticed he mostly renews his domains around 1am.

    Very strange... :\
