	Just wait -- soon there'll be more, each with flashy banner
	ads designed to confuse people into registering more domains
	(just like NetSol's banner ads now), and you'll have users
	attempt to register the same domain with all of them at once
	and then forget which one actually registered it first, so
	of course they'll call you for help.

	I'm certainly not saying that the status quo is good, but I
	can see a lot of pain in the transition -- especially since
	this probably isn't gonna be the last transition we see.
