right. you forget to pay for your domain, registrar warns you, they let you know a few times before the inevitable happens, they beg you to renew it. and you don't. and the guy that takes it when it falls is a sleazeball?
what do you think business is, a charity?
they need it, want it and they take it. you let it go. I am not going to ask you too are you aware of it and are you sure you want to let it go and can I take it.
if you let it hang in the space for months before it gets deleted for real then it is most likely of NO value to you nor of no value to anyone else.
