    I imagine Tagnames will snatch it as usual.

    shock horror

    what a surprise

    tagnames snatched it.

    i'm not being funny, but if tagnames are playing by the rules then surely they like the rest of us are in the lottery for catching these - but they get them every time.

    Not really very surprising. It's not a particularly good name*, so there will have been fewer people watching it. I didn't bother trying to catch it.

    P.

    * That is to say, I have no personal interest in peddling pills or selling to spammers. I doubt anyone reputable would have wanted that name, and I doubt many people seeking medication would type 'pill.co.uk' into their browser. But I may be being naieve :)

    Trouble is that Nominet do not care and in any event it is now too late as a small number of people hold a disproportionate number of the good names.

    What I wonder is how many of these small number actually have hidden multiple tags's,not saying of course that Tagnames does have but they must be doing something different to everyone else and that difference cannot surely be speed alone ??.

    What a load of old cobblers. Nominet clearly care about keeping things fair, look at the changes they made in the last pre-nom deletion.

    Yes, they've had a better strategy than other catchers in the past. However am I alone in thinking that their success rate has taken a bit of a dive lately?

    P.
