Free Domain Transfer - No Thanks

Received an email today from Network Solutions. Here is the bulk of it:

For a limited time you can transfer as many domain names as you like to Network Solutions absolutely FREE. Each name that you transfer will receive a FREE year added to its current registration. That's two free offers free transfer and a free year when you move a domain name registration to Network Solutions today.

I just spent the last 2 years transferring domains away from these morons and would gladly pay twice what I'm paying to keep them away from Network Solutions. I couldn't care what they are offering for free, I don't trust them to do anything right.

I wouldn't doubt if this has something to do with the recent SiteFinder mess these guys go themselves into. They probably have customers leaving in droves over that. I left well before they started that nonsense cause they were into all kinds of other nonsense.

And while I'm at it. It was confirmed by an unnamed registrar that Network Solutions seems to delay domain transfer requests away from them if you are anytime near the period where they can say "it is too late". Happened to me a few times so I transfered the rest rest well ahead of the renewal time. They conveniently seem to loose the transfer request or conveniently don't send out the confirmation emails. Nice way to do business.
