I hear you, but keep an eye on where DishWorks.com ends up in 6-7 days. According to GD it had a previous sale of $1200 and was regged in 2001 so I was incredibly shocked when this went through to the closeouts. This one was weird though when it went to closeouts - the page itself usually says 'auction ended' when someone buys it but it was in limbo for 5 minutes or so. It was the longest I've seen a domain hang in between auction and closeout. Point being - these vanishing closeouts aren't HD for the most part. It's people with the know how or the API. If you have both then you can pretty much take any closeout domain you want.
