The rare two letter domain name appears to have dropped back 2013.

The last record for the domain according to is from May 2013:

Can’t get information on local domain CM.COM”"

According to the domain was in use as a parking page most recently back in December 2010.

Unlike other two letter domain names that recently dropped like, the registry is not showing as having the domain name reserved.

Here is how the whois record of looks:

The registrant of this domain appears to be a  Satoshi Shimoshita of ,Koto-ku Tokyo who may have owned the domain since 1997 before allowing the domain to drop.

Not sure what the deal is.

Have no idea how someone can let a two letter domain name drop.

I also have no idea of how come the domain is not showing this as a reserved domain name.
