I did find this trend mostly with network solutions where he sells these domains back for a premium. Thank you for providing safe domain search urls.

Subject: [TwinCLinG] [OT] Safer domain search
I have been searching for a domain name for a new service we were planning to launch. I shortlisted a few good ones which were available and went back to register them the next week. To my surprise, I found them not available. These are not common names - they are very specific to a niche service and I doubted that somebody else would have thought the of same names at the exact same time.
On googling, I found that Network solutions and some other registrars do something called 'front-running' where they basically block all domain names that were searched for and force you to pay more.
There is a work around to this - Use
Hope this helps somebody.
