I really, really want the domain: nuclearsoup.wordpress.com for my band, Nuclear Soup, but I cannot get it.
Before you just reply without reading the rest, take this into consideration: when I try to register the name, it says that it has already been taken, but when I go to nuclearsoup.wordpress.com, it says, "This Blog has been deleted. The content is no longer available. Click here to get your own wordpress blog."
It's not like this is an actual blog, but rather a deleted blog that is caught in limbo between an official and an actual delete. I don't think that this is technically "recycling" a blog name, since it was deleted by the user.
