    For the third time in 5 years Lsland.com has expired and gone to auction at GoDaddy. In 2016 it closed at $510 and then in 2019 it closed at $305. This time around it closed at $5,400.

    Tragic.

    I saw humidifers.com in auction recently. I searched humidifiers.com on namebio and saw it sold for 50k previously.

    I was shocked at how low the current bid was but then I realized what was going on.
    RIP to all who fall for these domains.

    I've almost fallen for one of these scams on an auction site where it was a lower case 'L' acting like a letter 'I'

    likeThis (starts with capital L)
    IikeThis (starts with capital I)

    Ban who?
    The buyer?
    There were several bidders and the bid page was well marked with the caps version so I dont think it was a mistake.

    Lets see if it gets dev'd out, or like Nikhil mentioned, even paid for.

    Peace,
    Kenny
