Finding them before someone else does is the key because you want to catch them before they land in a domain auction.
I admit I am ignorant regarding this, so I hope you don't mind lending a hand with this.
Once they drop (I am assuming you mean that the domain name registration lapses) aren't they usually get in some sort of state where they can be renewed by the previous owner (maybe for a fee). A
And after that, don't they usually go straight to auction?
Or am I missing something here?
