	"Look how good you have it now" is not a valid excuse for incompetence.

	You probably meant "You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear."

	"They" didn't raise the bar.  "They" committed to meeting
	the requirements of running the registration portion of InterNIC.

	"They" are incompetent bufoons, their staff unaware of their
	own rules, their web pages misinforming us, 'their clients',
	and their processes breaking down under stress.

	It's not up to us to excuse them from this incompetence by
	making solipsistic references to a bygone era where 'Teengs Was Bad'
	but to demand excellence and insist on it.
	Unfortunately, with Network Solutions, it's clear the real Solution
	is to replace them.
