Lias: I'd always sort of assumed if the conflict wasn't resolved by today it would do so automatically, as far as I'm aware the party I'm in conflict with has never bothered taking any action. Seems they have eternity to do nothing, there is no timeout period so it will stay conflicted forever or until they stop using theirs.
Yeap. . In the UK I believe thy just gave people with the .co.uk domain the .uk domain, so .co.uk had priority.
