Re: Suspension of reissuing deleted domain names (fwd)

I think the reason NSI took the position they did was because these
companies re-register the domain after non-payment once it is released
back into the pool (probably repeatedly, and thereby causing the 'tens of
thousands of requests').  I think the only way to stop this type of action
is for NSI to require guaranteed payment on registration (account, credit
card, etc).  The grace period given is too generous and allowing this type
of ridiculous speculation.
