To be more accurate:

They are aggressively marketing *some* of the contents of WHOIS to
Postal Mail marketers. e-mail addresses are *not* provided. Spam is
UBE/UCE sent to e-mail addresses (says Paul Vixie, so it must be true
:-))

Yes, but same damn thing. I was never asked if I wanted to check off
"Do not solicit". My record was created when some of the people at NSI
gave a hoot.

I used to respect Network Solutions. "Used to" is the key phrase.
