We don't have a lawyer... Do you know any that could help us with this pro-Bono? I will read into this later tonight.
I don't know any lawyers that would know anything about American law (which I think the domain organisation is based on, they using the term "common law"), nor about Internet-related stuff, alas.

What's the purpose of getting autohotkey.net domain back, only for script storage?
If yes, then just use git hosting services, they usually give 'more than enough' storage for casual users.
Note: I'm not endorsing any hosting services in this list.

So my point is, there's no benefit of paying $3k just for buying a domain name.
One reason would be that there are a ton of links on Autohotkey pointing to the domain. We don't want them to point to malware or spam or whatever.

Is there any reason why it can't be just a simple domain? This "premium domain" stuff looks like it's for strictly commercial sites and should be avoided here if at all possible. There appears to be no official standards for what constitutes a premium site in any case.

Cripes- the post got a 500 when posting from page 1 of the topic. Missed page 2. Answers are there- need glasses, sorry.
