Yahoo wants to get you interested in registering a domain. Why bother?

Received an email from Yahoo offering a domain name for 2.99!

How long will you wait to get that domain for your business, hobby, family, or anything else that interests you? For only $2.99 for the first year, you'll get your domain name plus:

>  24-7 toll-free support: Get help if you have questions.
>  Bonus starter web page: Establish your web presence in minutes.
>  Domain forwarding: Easily send traffic from your other sites.

Your domain name is out there. Go get it.

 But, I've read GoDaddy's description of the add drop scheme.

Millions of good .COM domain names – on any given day over 3.5 million and climbing — are unfairly made unavailable to small businesses and others who would actually register and use them in ways for which the names were intended. Many times businesses accidentally let their domain names expire. When they go to renew them, they find they have been snapped up – and taken away with a huge expensive hassle to follow – by an add/drop registrar.

So it's a waste to even bother looking for "good" domain names. They're all tied up by these phony registrars.

So Yahoo don't waste my time.
