I own the gmone.org domain, so about 2 months ago I started getting spam from several domain-selling companies that they would reserve “gmone.com” for me when it expired for a fee. That fee was pretty high.. at first. As time went by, the price fell lower and lower.
When the domain actually expired, I logged in to my Dreamhost account and bought the domain at the regular cost.
A rare instance of spam actually providing a service—in this instance, as a calendar-ish reminder alarm.
P.S. Luisa, this is the domain i was thinking of, not tnir.com (which I don’t think will ever be available)
