I think UltSearch was simply transferring names INTO Network Solutions
from other registrars (probably was offered a good price for renewals).
I have no experience transferring names into NSI (usually everyone is
transferring away from NSI!), but I don't think there was anything
malevolent involved here -- just strange things going on in the
technical backend at NSI.
NSI should fix the record creation dates, though, as that could cause
problems (e.g. if one registered a domain in 1997, but it shows a new
creation date of 2002, and someone has a TM from 1999, one might lose
the domain name in a UDRP action).
