    Is there any chance to get the IP addresses included on any enquiries for domains, as otherwise it can be risky replying to an enquiry that maybe a TM lawyer ?. When my domains were parked I could look at logs and check the IP on Ripe and see who it is, but not now.

    Hey Mr. DG,

    I can see this is something you're very keen on. I'm not sure how useful it will really be to see if it's a TM lawyer or a drunk student, but it will be live within 60 minutes. I've just spoken to tech and they already have it on a test server. Seems to work well, so we'll stick it up.

    Yes, I know we shouldn't be working at this time but, oh well, sorry.

    Ed

    Oh. It's live. Didn't even have time to post :(

    Thanks Ed that will be useful. I checked my logs for one name I have'nt got on ND yet as its not much traffic and I see that it was a top law firm from London and thats what spurred me to ask.

    Thanks
    DG

    Some of the buyers are pretty clued up nowadays and will often use a yahoo or hotmail account to hide the fact they have money OR are planning a DRS,Wipo etc ,and then when you look at the IP address you can most time suss out who it is thats asking.

    Hopefully this will help to lower them again :)
    I suppose it can only be a positive thing to know more about the potential buyer.

    While we're on the subject - though not promising any promises - is there anything outstanding that people are waiting for to be implemented / would like to see done? We have plenty to be getting on with ourselves, but I always like to know what you're looking for :)
