Oh -- We know.  It is obviously NSI policy to keep their CUSTOMERS in the
dark about operational issues with a service for which we are paying $35/yr
per domain.  Just like it is their policy to omit information from
information posted on their web site regarding financial information citing
"proprietary information" although this information is available via FOIA.

We appreciate the fact that Mark may be black-and-blue for weeks as a
result of his post to NANOG.  We do NOT appreciate the cloak-and-dagger
tactics for which NSI is now world renowned.  Lose a record here,
arbitrarily delete a domain here, remove telephone contact information from
the web site, redirect internic.net to networksolutions.com and
delete/move/modify/FUBAR the information/templates/forms that have been in
the same location for YEARS citing "Improvements" as a reason -- ALL
without consulting the public OR the Government before doing so.  I could
give a rats ass about how pretty their site is.  Their cutesy little
graphics are a waste of bandwidth.  Speaking of which, I'm surprised that
there wasn't any stink about them providing ad space to VeriSign on the old
internic.net site.  I want reliable -- dependable -- FAMILIAR service. You
would think these people had J. Edgar Hoover at the wheel.
