Am I not allowed to reply to my own thread? Thanks for owning up DB. Nominet gave no information away apart from what I already said. This was a fishing exercise. I didn't know who it was but by the way it was done, it had to be a domainer. It is just a pity you posted so soon as it would have been nice to see who else is doing the same thing. Going by the 2 posts in the thread and the 4 pm's received, you are certainly not alone. I appreciate you did not know it was mine, but you did know it had to be a domainer that owned it. Instead of the registrant being a name, it showed as "Domain For Sale". I suppose it's all down to ethics. I for one could not do this and I side with DoubleTap. It is pick pocketing. Raiding from under the owners nose but as I said, you are not alone in doing this. I don't see this practice sitting well with the image the domaining community is trying to promote but maybe that's just me and i'm too soft. He who dares and all that. I don't want this thread turning into a slanging match. I just wanted to have my say and to reinforce what I said in my original posting. This is a warning to all, make sure you always have a valid contact email address in your registrant details. .
