Does anyone remember the days when (1994 or so) you tried to register more
than one domain for your company/corporation was met with a reply stating
that this wasn't really allowed?

Now, on http://www.networksolutions.com homepage:

"Protect your Internet Brand", Consider securing your dot net and dot org
Web addresses as well.

This is blasphemy. It appears the real reason they didn't want you
registering them in the past is that you didn't pay for them; I guess now
that you pay for them, they can recommend that you register as many as
possible, since it is direct revenues.

It's sickening.
