    Surely the bidders on CarribeanHolidays.co.uk have noticed its not the correct spelling?

    DL used to have more rules about blocking typos if I remember correctly. Maybe typo domains should be flagged as such.

    I'm sure I've seen listings with a typo label in the past on DL

    I really wasn't sure if I should mention it or not as I`m obviously going to p*** off at least one person (the seller) I just think maybe there should be a note on the listing stating the fact its spelled wrong.

    Similar to how citys is currently on there! Typos use to be picked up on.

    Then again, you also get American spellings and mis-spellings just to drive traffic..

    I think it is a case of 'caveat emptor'.

    I'm surprised no-one's taken pacificholidays.uk or arcticholidays.uk

    Various Himalaya(n) holidays/treks etc going begging too.

    Admittedly a bigger market for the Caribbean. Good luck with that.
