Network Solutions just committed suicide I would never use them again. Them holding is actually making more issues with it as I am sure you could scan the dns to find all the records they are holding and then pick the good ones out and buy them or heck buy them all as soon as they release it and see who asks to buy it. ICANN wake up!
