VeriSign’s at it Again

Well, it looks like VeriSign (aka Network Solutions) is at it yet again: being one of the scum of the internet.  This time, they’re proactively squatting on domains that people are looking up.  Check that link for details, but the short, short version is that if you do a who-is search that uses a VeriSign/Network Solutions service and the domain wasn’t previously registered, VeriSign puts a hold/lock on it that means you can only purchase it from them and not other registrars.  I’ve mentioned VeriSign multiple times before.  Clearly, they’re not one of my favorite companies.
