RE: [registrars] GNR email@example.com issue
I have to completely agree. Try explaining to a customer that they just
bought a firstname.lastname.name, but their email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org and they have to pay an extra $15 a year to use
it and you only receive email forwarding.
For $15 a year, I would expect to have a spam filtered POP3 account not
just email forwarding.
