For years I held the domains and .net, next to the .eu one. Recently I decided to let the .com and .net one go.

Cue the domain sellers in my inbox. EasyRegisters spammed me today. You have a similar domain! And this one is now available! Pay only $90!
Yes, available because I let it go.

I know this type of thing exists, but it really is an irksome valueless “service” and a form of rent seeking.
