I actually hope at some point they do plan to charge - if it means they
could update their brain-dead database system and improve responsiveness
by hiring more people. Twice in the last 3 months my DNS registration
has been messed up on account of incorrect information on other people's
domain registration forms, a bug that could easily have been fixed if
they had a better database system.
