Re: Be Afraid -> InterNIC Email Addresses CD: $249

No real worry from these folks. From there web page:

Formal announcement from Domains on Disc.
                           Tuesday, September 22nd, 1998 4:10PM PDT 


                           Due to the overwhelming amount of e-mail that we
have received, Domains on Disc has decided
                           to indefinitely suspend the sale of this
product. It has never been our intention to have this
                           product used as source for Unsolicited
Commercial E-mail

                           Apparently our decision to discontinue this
product has not satisfied a few internet
                           users who are currently sending out spam with
our domains/e-mail addresses
                           forged in the headers. 

                           To this date, no CD's have been pressed or shipped.

                           We regret any inconvenience that this may have
caused you.

                           Please feel free to contact us, should you have
any questions. 

                           Sincerely,
                           Domains on Disc
