    Looks like they have leveled the playing field with Drop who does the same.

    ahhhhh, no, only certain people it appears can make $1 bids ? how can that be ? at least they could of pretended to do $10 bids instead of waving a flag.

    Can you make $0 bids on Drop? If not then i guess your issue is with drop catchers in general not just Netfleet? I am reminded of this comment:

    "$0 bids are a pre-order for this portfolio - we will attempt to catch/register these domains for this client in the event that they receive no other bids on Drop.com.au." (from here).

    Only certain people on Drop can make $0 bids from what I can see? I guess there is a $1 difference between Publishing Australia and Domain Active but to me the $1 difference is the same thing - the drop catcher securing the domain if no firm bids are placed?

    Duncan22 you are correct, the difference is Drop have always told us that, its changing the playing field without warning that bugs me as what else is happening that we don't know about......... until they get caught out?

    problem is that it is their playing field and they do make the rules so we are left with " play by them or F off " , not really what most business do and i just think they could at least try to pretend that domainers actually help their business survive.
