    By Law, both fasthosts and Nominet have to report it to the information commissioners office.

    Acted in good faith, paid a good fee 12.50 for 1 year uk o_O:eek: and the main factor had no ‘intent‘ to steal something that was at expiry or to obtain anyone’s details.

    if nom rule in general and not on a case by case basis that this shouldn’t have happened I’m more than happy to hand them back to fast hosts for a full refund.

    Good faith isn't transferring a name that isn't yours before its free to register to the general public, and then telling nominet that you are the contact on the domain and whether you choose to look at the personal information you've stolen is by the by really.

    You didn't do it as a test? You are openly admitting taking the name without authorisation and you used your own tag?

    Are you mad as well as dishonest?

    Just seen the part where you demand a refund if you get caught stealing. Absolute lunatic.

    Yeah, I'd rather let people do their own looking, just in case, but if they did contact the owner and buy it legitimately, they're pretty busy as I've just seen another one from today, same tag...

    I thought I'd seen it all. What a year this has been for domaining, it sunk to an all time low.

    one thing I’m not is dishonest.

    Wouldn’t be the first time greedy domainers found a target to make themselves feel better but I’m not it believe me.
