We went through that last year.  The domain name was > 3 months past
expiration, and I finally called NSI and got kicked up the food chain to
someone "in legal".  I was told that "NSI will not release expired domain
names for other to register unless the name is intentionally transferred by
the [ex] owner of the domain".  And there at lay, until the name we had been
trying for 3 1/2 months to register was mysteriously registered by abovenet.

I hear big $$ works well, but if you're just one of "us", you can forget
about anything even remotely related to either "service" or "honesty".
