Could it be that our friends at Network Solutions discriminate against some users while letting others get away with not paying their bills?

What do you suppose would happen if you didn't pay your annual fee to NSI for your domain name? Like many have already discovered, your domain would go poof and either lie fallow or be routing to someone else's location. It's only fair, after all. If you don't pay for the right to have your domain in NSI's database, it should be wiped.

Well, look what we discovered:

The same thing had happened to bellatlantic.net recently but apparently that one was paid since the expiration date is now 2004.

We don't expect to ever get an answer on this but thought it was interesting enough to make note of.
