Discussion in 'Drop catching Domain Names' started by Murray, Sep 3, 2020.
Any insight/updates on the 3DWEB stuff?
I have no doubt, I was just making the point that it may not be safe even if registered in the last week.
I don't expect them to drop, they will be renewed, same with ones on SIGN TAG.
The whole thread is worth a read.
As for 'hassle' down the road, the more people think like that the cheaper the domains in question will be which ironically will make them more attractive as a punt. Would be interesting to see what a prime domain with a potential asterisk next to it goes for at Auction. I'm struggling to imagine a no bidders scenario even where there is knowledge the domain may be compromised.
In reality, one would have to consider what if nothings done? This will compel people to bid regardless.
Reminds me of this in terms of potential complexity and likely outcome:
2015. Bandidos and Cossacks motorcycle gangs end up in a carpark shootout over the right to wear 'Texas' badges on their leather jackets.
9 dead, multiple injuries, hundreds of witnesses. 320 individual weapons seized at the scene, 192 bikers arrested, 106 individual bikers indicted and taken into custody on felony charges ranging from Murder to Weapons Possession. Video and Photographic evidence.
Outcome. Zero convictions. DA managed to successfully prosecute zero cases. 130 bikers have pending Civil Compensation Claims against the Police and DA for infringement of their Civil Rights.
If enough people do the same thing at the same time the act itself can magically become lawful due to the cost of doing anything about it.
have there been any premiums sold on so far at auction ? Or indeed any at all ?
We wouldn't have a problem bidding on them if they appeared at auction.

I spoke to Leon I know him well he didn’t sell this domain to anyone
secretsanta.uk TAG changed LIVEDOMAINS MONSTER
Can't be, Suzanna said she didn't obtain it through this method. I would expect a NED candidate to be candid with their answer. If through some form of clever wording we have been misled then that is shocking. It has been 3-4 days for her to do some checking about who she bought it from.
If she din't buy it from the owner then that is very poor form.
I don't think definitive conclusions can be reached by us here on forum – we don't have the full picture.
There is information which only the rightful owners and Nominet would have access to.
All we can do it highlight something that looks extremely suspicious and demand Nominet look into it and take action.
I understand this was reported to the police and media, so it would be shocking if Nominet tries to cover it up or ignore it
Does anyone else find it abit weird that it's now 10:45 on Tuesday and Nominet haven't mentioned anything regarding this? Not a surprise, but weird
Wow. Guys you do not know the facts, and Nominet and Fasthosts do. Totally. Everything is documented (thank goodness). I am completely secure about things, and indeed Fasthosts have conceded that. Wizard, Leon should contact Nominet and Fasthosts. They have the facts. Honestly, it's all I'm saying. If Nominet thought I had acted wrong they wouldn't let me be elected I assure you, and that would be right, but anyway what benefits me is not important . The whole system needs review. It's all I'm saying and you have to think what you will.
did you but it from the owner or not?
Any suggestions on who we should now vote for? Bering in mind we can change our votes!
If you're just a member of the public then the "fasthosts told me it's ok" line is fine, how would you know any better
If you're a registrar and participated in this you have no excuse you agreed to Nominets t&c
Especially as this is 4 days old now and it is clear what has gone on. Even if you were duped into buying it, to not hold your hands up and give the name back in those 4 days is low.
It depends, so for example, if you personally requested some domains from Fasthosts and made it clear they are not yours but would like to take ownership of them during their expiry/suspension, providing you don't then move them to your tag for change of registrant, technically a contract is between you and Fasthosts only (of which Fasthosts own terms, whilst contrary to Nominets, allow them right to do this), and Nominet have no part to play. Where Nominet do have a part is if complaints are made to them, they are compelled to investigate Fasthosts, not that of the individual.
I suspect Fasthosts will argue that the domains were part of the ROR release; registered pre-ROR, not claimed by the deadline and therefore whilst the domains are in the registrants name, they had to request transfer to their account, otherwise Fasthosts would retain control to do as they please. Obviously if these domains were actually showing in owners accounts, that may be different, but for all we know, the contact information assigned to these might have been Fasthosts until transferred. Speculating of course.
How could FastHosts register domains to themselves when the RoR was to .co.uk owners? couldn't .uk only be registered with the .co.uk registrants details?
