Even worse it could have been purchased by someone with even more disreputable intentions.I should explain in cyber terms squatters speculatively buy domain names in the hope of selling them to a more appropriate owner at a later time. The least undesirable of the more disreputable intentions would be spammers wishing to cash in on a "leeds pedigree". The more undesirable would need an X, XX, XXX, XXXX........ rating

I hope you were not too miffed Geordie-exile in not being able to buy it, though as a regular contributor to SL I'm sure you would have donated it back. Edit added moments after posting. In view of tyke bhoy's post I really must learn to type faster so post sooner!

To be clear I think renew means that someone renewed it not necessarily the incumbent.I think, but don't know, that it is not good news that the name servers have changed (see my post on page 2) and that the IP location is now showing as Los Angeles when at the time of my search on page 2 it was showing as Manchester (which in many's eyes was bad enough )edit to add http://who.is/whois/secretleeds.com/

Patter,the Tucows expiry is 8th Jan 2012 (4 days ago). Who.is certainly thinks that the domain is unavailable other than on backorder (when it expires) but everything else suggests it is still available because it has expired including the who.is search
