It's politics now.

Network Solutions is unilaterally making changes to the Internic services
they offer without any notice or any attempt to publicly consult with
network operators. The only way I can thnk of to address this is the
political route. Start by making a formal request to ICANN for this service and explain why it is needed. Follow
up with a formal complaint to the Department of Commerce in Washington DC
regarding the sudden withdrawal of the service.

Or sit silently on your hands, bellyache with your friends and deserve
what you get. That's how politics works. You have no choice as to whether
you play the game of politics. Your only choice is what role to play.
