Fell from where-- your lap? :)

$ gzip -dc /usr/local/share/tar-gzips/randomaker.tar.gz | tar tvf -

So, any recommendations for quality recipients of VeriSign and/or
Network Solutions (or for the real oldskoolers, netsol) Google juice?  
Here are some possible candidates:

Already top hit for "VeriSign sucks".  Also hit #7 for "VeriSign 
-site:verisign.com -site:networksolutions.com".

Includes link to step-by-step guide for quitting the VeriSign habit.

Network Solutions Inc. horror stories.  Annoying "Best viewed with 
Microsoft Internet Explorer" front page and some completely frivolous 
(mumble)Script, but, eh, better than nothing.
