VeriSign are scum

Got a renewal notice today for, all of five months or so before the expiry date. “Act now”, etc. Also, when registering for anything, I always use an email address whose username identifies the company I’m registering with, such as “”. Then, if I receive spam to that address, I know which company has sold my details.

Network Solutions/VeriSign sell domain registrants’ details all over the place; it probably accounts for about 40% of the spam I receive. Never, never use their services if you can at all avoid it. They’re just scum, in my humble opinion.
