My previous post (3 years ago!) mentioned that discountdomainregistry was a bit wonky. Turns out they were circling the drain, and about 2 years ago were bought by  For some reason my “” domain didn’t come along with my other ones, and I had a difficult time convincing them I was the owner of the account, which interfered with my ability to renew the domain until…da da dum, a domain squatter (from Japan, of all places) registered my domain, and won’t let me have it back.  The folks in charge of the snafu apologized to me, but didn’t make it better.  I’m bummed out.
