    Well I wasted my money on trying to get this grabbed by
    using yoursitehere as the domain went to Jon Stock, Why dont
    Nominet just give all the suspended names to a few of their favourite
    tagholders and be done with it ?.

    You were optimistic to even dream of getting a name like this for the cost of a booking with a dropcatcher, even if you had it booked with all dropcatchers your chance of getting it would have been very small. There are just too many tags going after a small number of names, and it's is likely to get worse not better.

    If you want to beat the likes of Jon Stock, or any of the others in the top league, you need to invest in a tag, an automated system, and some extensive lists. If you are going to prosper without a tag, then you need to focus on a specialist area, and find names that will have future value.

    Thanks ,yes know that you are right ,I am just annoyed that
    Nominet operate a system that excludes the very people that
    they are MEANT to be serving,the public. A bit like saying join the
    Masons so you get an inside track. I would be quite happy if this
    was an equal system but its not and Nominet are allowing it.
    A friend of mine is a journalist with one of the major Nationals
    and is thinking of doing a story on it.Hopefully Nominet will
    take notice then.

    The Nominet system is far from perfect, but in most respects the latest version works well. It is easy to criticise and find fault, but I can't really imagine a workable system that would satisfy the man in the street.

    Domains are business assets like equipment, and they have value because of this. It follows that a big business will have better equipment and smaller businesses will make do with what they can afford. There is no real justification to provide business equipment to the man in the street, especailly not at artificially low prices.

    The strange part about this analogy is that a large proportion of the .uk "equipment" is held in stock, rather than actually being used. And it appears to the man in the street that the companies or individuals holding all this stock acquired it with little effort or expense.
