How to get a domain that is no longer active

    Hi,

    I'm trying to get a certain domain name with WordPress, but apparently someone was once using that domain. When I visit it, it says "The authors have deleted this blog. The content is no longer available." And it's a blank page. But it doesn't give an option to take it over, or contact the user or anything! I want that domain, and if no one is using it, shouldn't there at least be a way of asking the original user if I can have it? Can anyone help me here? Thanks a lot.

    You cannot get an old name. There are deleted, and there are deleted forever.
