I really got a kick out of this quote.  "We need to be more than a domain
name company," said Douglas Wolford, NSI executive vice president. "We
believe we are the operating system for the Internet." 

I believe not only are they full of themselves, but it's about time
something was done to stop these guys.  I too would love to see these guys
in court taking a large hit to the wallet, since that seems to be the only
thing they understand anymore.
