In the process, thougfh, I visited www.nsi-direct.com. I knew they
were up to some fairly sleazy things, like spamming and selling whois
info to marketers, but ...
What I found seems much worse:
Don't settle for your second choice domain. Find your
first choice in our catalog of more than 2 million
pre-registered domains for sale.
As I read that, they are hoarding domains in a horrendous way.
