Domain Rant.

Please, Please!  I have five domains that I have already paid for put on
hold (or about to be put on hold in the next few days), I also have a
zillion "Invoice" notices cc'd to us from internic sent to customers that I
*know* have paid.  Since we paid by credit card, I'm sure that we're going
to have to pay them *again* (at least one domain has already been paid
twice, this'll be the 3rd payment we have to make becuase internic can't
find a record that we paid, and our CC bill doesn't have the name of the
domain on it.)

It's just gross incompetence, and at this point I don't have much choice
but to throw the internic more of my money.
