Does anyone have some input on this? Thanks...

Expire soon as to the date showing on the whois information means the owner of that domain has I think between 30-60 days to pay for the domain name at the regester of the domain.
It can not be just snatched up as soon as it expires. You may as well have been the 3rd to 4th one to backorder the domain so your in the hunt with the rest of the pack waiting for the domain to fully expire and I assume will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.
If this auction is only with the ones signed up I don't have a clue but it could have been backordered by a domain auction company as well they pretty sharp on these things.

I ended up winning one of these expired domain name auctions/backorders and the domain - although transferred to me - has kept the original creation date (2005) - is this normal / allowed ?

yes creation date of the domain is always shown

I am still confused. So if an expired domain is sold by a registar it is legal for that registar to keep the original creation date, not the 'new' creation date (i.e. a date AFTER the domain was sold)?

Creation date is when the domain was first registered - it doesn't reflect changes in registrar or ownership.

Thanks for that. That is an interesting comment. The people at ICANN said something similar I think.
Yet I believe that when a domain completely 100% expires it will get a new creation date if it is re-registered. Correct?
If so, then things do not seem correct (i.e. how can a domain keep it's original creation date if it supposed to be 100% expired?)

I just spoke with someone today at a registrar and it seems that what is being done is that these expired domains are held in some deletion account and are then moved to the new owner - again - is this legal?
