    I doubt it. That's the problem with large companies. Things like this get missed. Turn around of staff etc

    Also at some point they went to the trouble of getting a Nominet TAG to administer it all..

    It's possible they just don't care about the .uk.

    For what it costs I cannot image a decision not to renew was made. But who knows.. :)

    I would say that McVities.uk is worth keeping if your £2Bn brand is called McVities

    I prefer Jaffacakes but I hear they're bad for the digestive system....

    Some would no doubt be lost at DRS or in court over TM and others are common words with other meanings. Be interesting to see how (if) they act.

    I didn't have anything to load today after looking at the DL drop list, so i checked the drop list on one of Rob's hosted catch sites and saw Jacobs dropping, but with my eyes being so bad, I didn't see biscuits on the drop list o_O, nice catch Sean :cool:

    My droplists have a 'dictionary' filter if you want to quickly find keywords for future reference.

    *edit* Sorry I misread your post as you being on my site - not a catcher's site.
