As a side note, make sure if you buy a domain name that you are listed as 
the administrative (as opposed to technical) contact.  The administrative 
contact is the one who legally owns the domain name.

---------- Forwarded message ----------
People may recall the verb "slam" from a tactic used by phone companies to
snare customers into switching long-distance providers involuntarily.

Verisign have now introduced slamming to domain-name registration.

They are sending out "expiration notices" for domains that say: "check
here if you wish to renew your domain for one year."

These notices go out regardless of who the domain registrar is.

The fine print on the back say that "by signing this form, you hereby
authorize us to tranfer the registration of your domain names(s) from your
current registrar to Verisign".

You may wish to consider a company's business practices when deciding
where to take their patronage.  Caveat registrar, as always.
