    Imagine spending all that money on wc.uk to let it drop 4 years later and let someone using Deny's dropcatching script catch it. Lol, crazy.

    Insane catch though Adelere!!

    Correct me if wrong but I think it was just part of a sweep up by GODADDY back when .uk's were released, so the only associated costs were the renewals. Still a big fat waste of money, like holiday and many more before, but we shouldn't complain, if everyone was efficient and resourceful, there wouldn't be profit in it for us! :D

    A few years ago someone bought a co.uk for £10,000 on sedo, used bad whois information, it got suspended by Nominet and they manually dropped it just a few months after

    That's the worst example I've seen

    I guess there's people out there with more money than sense. To not notice your £10k asset is going to disappear is pretty bad wealth management though :p

    Thanks for the heads up, time to implement those tweaks to my code I've been procrastinating about for weeks. :D
