There has been a lot of recent discussion about our (current) sole expired domain name marketplace in Australia – Drop.com.au. Most of this has revolved around a perceived lack of transparency during and after the bidding process; and the incremental levels of bids a bidder may need to place.
There are two obvious facts here. One, it is their business, and they can choose to operate it how they want. Two, until there is another platform to bid on (a competitor), fact one will probably never change.
Here is a comparison of what it could be like

Every screenshot tells a story. Have a look at these, and judge for yourself. I have highlighted one domain supposedly dropping later today / tonight. No further commentary from me.
What do you think?
