    I haven't voted because I own my last name and full name but can only select one option. Also, is this .co.uk only?

    My full name is available com and co.uk, but some teen kid in Aberdeen popped up on youtube about a year ago with the same name and significant talent -sent him an email and left them for him.

    No response and no take-up, I'm going to take them myself soon, sometimes you learn the hard way. Not that I actually want to use them ...

    Reg them just to teach him a lesson, I e-mailed a well know British sports person to say your name is avilable as .co.uk and it still is now 6 months later :?

    I regged mine but not bothering with them, I don't want everyone finding me that easy :|
