    wtf, godaddy?

    i was watching a domain i'd wanted for a while and decided to put a backorder on it at godaddy. i'd done this before w/o a hitch.

    well, as soon as the name wasn't renewed (yay!), it went into a domain auction...wait, what?. they sent me an email saying they placed the first bid for me since i'd placed a backorder on it. irritated and more than slightly confused at this new procedure, i still played the auction game and won the domain. hooray, it's finally mine!

    today i get an email saying the original owner still has a few weeks of redemption time to renew it, and if they DON'T, then i can have it for my highest bid.

    what the hell is going on at godaddy these days?!

    To the OP: sometimes it's VERY enlightening to read ToS, instead of compaining to the left and to the right...

    thank you for the enlightenment.

    actually i was referring to the CHANGE in how they handle backorders.
