Hi Guys,

I'm totaly annoyed now - I was searching for domain names late last month around the one subject its very small and not many people would even think about buying this domain.

I decided this domain was perfect for me and I find:

Registered on: 19-Feb-2007
Renewal date: 19-Feb-2009

Registration status:
Registration request being processed.

Its a UK domain, I only searched for the UK domain as I didn't want the .com - Me is sad, I will need to find a totaly new name now.

People talk alot about this. So much that if I ever query a domain I think I might want then I generally just go ahead and register it just in case.

heh, thats a lot WebWork.

Found another domain with a different word, got it and paid for it today. The only thing that will make me smile is that they won;t make any money from type in traffic and my new domain is better anyway. *sigh*!
