About 6 or so months ago I reported to the register of a domain name I have been trying for 8 plus years to buy the contact information was incorrect. I have emailed the guy more than 8 times making offers for the domain.

The domain name is a misspell were an i is and not an e.

When I stared my ecommerce business 9 years ago I didn't have a clue on this kind of stuff. I found out when I tried to send a friend to my site and he kept telling me he was getting a different site. After I discovered he was putting an i and not an e I have been trying to buy the domain name as a squatter had beat me to it. Been trying for 8 years.

Today out of the blue I checked the whois on the domain and to my utter joy is was deleted and available again how long I don't have a clue.

I am sure it was because I reported incorrect information in the whois as last time I checked the domain name had till 2010

Just a note for all those that a squatter has and the whois information isn't correct report it and keep an eye on it you never know. :)

If you own land but don't respond to an interested parties calls or unsolicited offers to buy your land, would it be reasonable for them to call you a land squatter? Hardly.

Lets say your land is very similar to land that they own next door, land that they failed to buy for whatever reason, but land that they now want due to increased cash flow or expansion plans etc...Even if he has wanted your land for 8 years the fact remains that you still beat him to it, during a time in which he had no desire for it or just because he was not paying enough attention to the value of your land at the time.

Whatever his reasons for not buying YOUR land before YOU DID, none of his reasons make YOU a land squatter, do they.
