"Annals of sleazy marketing -- Network Solutions moves into second place"

    "Last year, I registered the domain larrypress.net with Network
     Solutions (NS). I had no immediate use for the name, so I opted for
     automatic renewal and forgot about it. On September 28, 2012, I
     received an email from NS saying they would automatically renew the
     registration some time in the next 90 days. (I checked later -- the
     expiration date was January 12, 2013).  Some time later, I remembered
     the pending expiration, and renewed. My credit card company notifies
     me of online charges, and I received an email saying NS had charged
     $37.99. That struck me as mistakenly high, so I tried to stop the
     transaction using email." -- Larry Press
