People who are horrible spellers should never be allowed to register domains after midnight.

That sounds a good idea. But on which timezone?

How long after midnight? Eight hours? Twelve hours? Twenty-four hours? :)

Perhaps you should be asked a series of questions before you can register a domain:

1. Have you consumed more than 2 units of alcohol in the last hour?
2. Have you slept less than one hour in the last 24 hours?

Never underestimate the value of typing incompetence.

I accidently reg'ed a type domain of a city, which I allowed to drop, only to watch it snapped up by a domain drop catching service where it ultimately sold for $2,500 at auction.

Park that typo and see what happens before you toss it into the dumpster.

So, graywolf, share with us, which domain did you errantly register? :-)

I'm just kidding, it would get edited anyway.

In my student days I typed and sent a letter of protest to the Whitehouse but W and S are right next to one another on the keyboard.
A typing error, an honest mistake..honest.
