    @RobM Just out of interest, I dont get how you can cheat other than get an advantage of knowing the time and hitting at max rate then ? Have they worked out the random seed or something ?

    Collusion of 30 Tags in sequence would be quite competitive.

    yep. Makes sense. Although... hell of an expense to set up and run, and unless all one person then 1/30th of the return. You'd have to be getting a lot of flights.co.uk to make it worth it

    Would that not mean we would see 30 tags grabbing all the best domains, rather than just a handful?

    @RobM Is there any chance you can reveal the flaw that's allowing this to happen, its clear that Nominet has no desire to enforce its rules for a level playing field, therefore the only way to get any where near to fairness would be for everyone to be aware of and exploit the flaw.

    I think Nominet would use him as a Scapegoat then, and probably sue him.

    Sue him for what?
    Posting a 'hypothetical' approach to catching domains?

    No need for any additional setup. Token payments or "purchases" would be sufficient to manage Tags otherwise not in use, of which there are many hundreds. Tag changes can happen in the blink of an eye after catches.

    This was not in the script so to speak. Dropcatching equivalent of winning the Grand National, considering the odds against. An excellent result, well done @RobM
