I was helping someone come up with names for a new site they're building.
He gave me a few different names then I went away and looked for a few myself using 123-reg.
I came back to him with 3 available names and he liked one of them.
The same day I told him about it someone on Go Daddy registered it.
I thought it was him, but he came back and asked me if it was available when I searched for it (which it was).
Could Go Daddy somehow look at what other people are searching for on other registrars then snap names up, or is it purely a coincidence that someone snapped it up within hours of my telling him about it?
