    Interesting piece on the mess.

    Reg state: "charlie.uk, which was assigned to Leon Hughes, who owns charlie.co.uk, was ultimately transferred to Susannah Clark. Hughes said he did not authorize the sale."

    "Fasthosts said the sales were "a mistake," with its head of sales and marketing Michelle Stark telling The Register on Wednesday that 38 expiring domains had been renewed and shifted before they publicly dropped in a "one-off online transaction" due to "human error."

    There were many others, not mentioned, that were stolen by various members of this community. I hope they have been returned also. It's unfortunate Susannah has come under scrutiny, but that's what happens when you're in the "limelight". A, perhaps fatal, mistake on her road to becoming NED elect.

    Sadly for somebody normally so vocal, on this occasion silence speaks louder than words :(.
