    Well I didn't take copies of your website at the time so I don't have any evidence, sorry. The fact you haven't denied it speaks volumes though.

    I only tried to answer an unanswered question in this thread from another member as accurately as I could. It wasn't childish at all.

    If I wanted to be childish, I'd resurrect this thread: http://www.dntrade.com.au/black-market-domain-name-trade-t5011.html

    my logic would say if something has been caught there is little chance its going to come back on the market, either its been bought by a domainer or picked up by the original owner who has now learnt their lesson for letting it drop.

    at a guess johno69 what % would you say caught domains come back to drop in just 2 years? just a guess

    No idea at all.. But you then have a record ofthe expiry cycle. be it 2 years, 8 years etc..

    Unless things change, this will be useful one day.

    I think the drop houses would have a very comprehensive list though already.

    Well according to the bottom of this - http://www.netfleet.com.au/domain-sales-graphs it refers to 226 repeat drop sales since 2009. So that's 226 out of....hmmm

    Maybe since start 2009, that means 18 months worth of domains are over 2 years old (ie could have possibly dropped)

    Say 30 domains/day are caught. In 18 months that's 16,000 names. So we're looking at 1.4% of caught domains are likely to drop again? Is that roughtly right? Maybe Anthony can help us with the numbers?

    is it safe to assume if a domain has a modified date of 13 sept 2010 and is with drop that it will be dropping soon? if so, what would be the time frame?
