    Wow, before we couldn't buy from Network Solution due to their ridiculously high prices, but now we can't even search there for domains anymore. Way to destroy a business.

    One of the quotes in the comments was spot on - "We’re front-running in order to save you from the front-runners."

    Priceless.

    I just read a thread on this at WMW. Just reinforces my opinion of the sleazy domain business.

    i'm selling you marijuana to save you from the drug dealers... i'm robbing you to save you from the thieves... i'm screwing you to save you from the rapists...

    what is the matter with people at these big companies that make these decisions?

    do keep in mind that the only way someone can front run you (the ones they say they're saving us from) is for the bad guys to capture your search for a domain name - so either they are spyware people, illegal internet wire tapping people or they've cut a deal with someone who works in the network solutions data center to gain access to the search data...

    since the identity of these people is easily determined, somebody needs to get serious and slap them down. of course, maybe the governing bodies are made up of folks taking a little kick back too...

    what a mess.

    they need to drop the tasting thing - what people pay is so little they don't need that tasting period, tell people a sale is a sale and there's no refunds. it would cure all these problems... but someone's benefitting from the availability of tasting... and here we see someone deciding to join them... yuck!
