Didn't they check to make sure they weren't deleting valid domains?!

This is worse than the time I worked on the phone with one of their support
people and they screwed up and changed the domain record to "nacs.com", which
effectively removed NACS.NET from the database altogether. I bet the National
Association of College Stores wasn't too happy either. (They are nacs.com.)
