Please see my comment. That's what I said... The animal name is Raccoon and not Racoon. Andrew assumed he was buying the animal name when it turned it it wasn't.
And the original post states the following:
Nat Cohen’s @Telepathy bought Racoon.com from James Booth (@BoothDomains) and Vole.com from GoDaddy’s NameFind portfolio

I don't see what's the problem with my comment. Both my comments are accurate.

Also Drew didn't want to proceed with the purchase from me of Racoon due to it having 2 spellings so Nat purchased it instead.

So Drew's tweet is, um, inaccurate?
Can you explain what do you mean by 2 spellings?

I agree with @anantj

Personally I would not buy the domain so @BoothDomains did well moving it out.

That said, probably most people spell it incorrectly anyways.
