to be very clear, this 'domain tasting' (no matter if you like it or not)
is just using a 'loophole' in the policy/purchase that's there for the
safe guarding of normal folks. It just happens that you can decide within
5 days that you don't want a domain or 1 million domains...

So, to be clear folks want to make it much more difficult for
grandma-jones to return the typo'd: mygramdkids.com for mygrandkids.com

(yes, domain tasting is unlikeable)
