  1. I got someone to release a username to me for one of my…special interest accounts. Just dropped them a note, explained I’d been using that name for years, and they dropped it, no questions asked.

    Of course, I’ve also had one of my website domains grabbed by squatters when I didn’t renew it in a timely fashion, who generously offered to give it back for four or five grand.

    Interestingly, it might have been worth it, if I’d had the cash.

      Yeah – i was a couple days late renewing my original domain (with a “.com”) and they grabbed it and offered to sell it back to me for about $500.

      I registered the “.net” instead…

        Man, squatters like you guys both experienced are my nightmare! Must be vigilant in all my domain renewals, even if I can’t imagine anyone else trying to snake them!
