    No. A common reason for this is the person regged the .com first then the other two later, the .com drops first leaving the other two regged for a while.

    This case seems a little different.

    The .net and .org were regged fairly recently. By two separate entities.

    The .com had been regged, as far back as 2000.

    More of a reason to reg. I still don't think it is a particularly compelling reason. The chance of the .net and .org owner paying anything is probably low.

    Exody used to track names like this. I would imagine you could find thousands if you really wanted to.

    As an aside. Given that .com is king. What is the compelling reason for the same registrant acquiring the other tld's?

    Now appears that the answer to this question is "Yes."
