Today I got what I thought was a renewal notice for one of my domains from Verisign, asking $29 for another year. Fair enough I thought and started filling out my credit card details. Then I thought, hang on, I wasn't in the country on May 15th (deadline printed at the top of the page). Closer inspection reveals that I was just about to transfer my domain to them (it's currently handled by Low Cost Domains). I can't believe Verisign are stooping to this unethical behaviour, I can imagine these landing on the desks of secretaries or busy people (like me) and them paying for it. This kind of thing should be illegal. I'm quite vexed by this.
/me goes to find somebody to write to and complain
