A Few Dirty Little Secrets About Backordering A Domain Name - DaveZan.com | DaveZan.com: "The idea behind this is is I get around the rule that my registrar can’t actively engage in backordering and “stockpiling” domain names. But I can still do that under my LLC because there’s no specific rule preventing this from happening.

Now I know this one’s rather farfetched, and I admit I don’t exactly have direct proof. But the reason I mention this is because some people I know have personally experienced something like this happen to them."
