While you might want to think so

While you might want to think so none of the stories on this site are jokes. Ever since Network Solutions was assimilated by Verisign ("Trust is the foundation of every human relationship"), their tactics to obtain (or retain) your business have gotten sneakier. Be warned, non-Verisign domain registrants, you may get an invoice from Verisign that looks like this. Ethical? Hardly. Try as I might, I can't find anyone trying to stop Verisign from these practices. I'm beginning to think Verisign is really run by these folks. By the way, this is my first post. Please be gentle.

Anyone else joined up for this?

Anyone else joined up for this? With all the grief that ICANN & NSI seem to be causing these days, I'm curious how many other people out there have joined the ICANN Member-At-Large program, and if anyone has posted any comments yet. To me, requiring someone to get 10% of the Asian region, to be self-nominated, seems most improbable.

interNIC lost my business!!!

interNIC lost my business!!! To take the heat (and any possible lawsuits) off of them, they have now changed thier policy to revoke anyone's domain name at their discretion.

Phil Sbarbaro, NSI's legal counsel, offered a parallel to summarize prevailing law: "You don't own a domain name any more than you own your phone number."

I don't know about you guys, but I am definitely finding another registrar to transfer my domain names to...ASAP!

Due to the recent truce between the ICANN and NSI, new suffixes may be

Due to the recent truce between the ICANN and NSI, new suffixes may be prevented from ever being allowed or at least delayed. It's a shame, because good URLs are running out fast and domain squatters are making a killing.
