    A single word generic domain has been available to register for a few days now. I think it would easily sell in an auction, DL or other. Certainly a good £10 punt, maybe worth hundreds to one company.

    Who will be first to find it? I will give you "link" as a small clue

    You can actually do this in your account. I think, if I remember correctly, you can email Guy and ask him to enable it. Mine went back just one day, but I've seen it go back further I'm sure.

    No I just shut down paid memberships and accounts. 7 days dropping and expired are available free to everyone and have been for months - no account needed.

    I've been through both 'link' and 'chain' as wildcards and nothing is jumping out, right back to 1st Jan. Will continue to look.

    Yes, enabled on your account. Just look for 'Historic drop lists' under the 'Drop lists' account menu.
