InterNIC Domain Name Deactivation FAQ

In advance, I'll apologize for this post which on the surface would
not appear directly related to running a North American network :).
However, because it does impact those who do, I have included below
a repost of a FAQ posted to the InterNIC RS-TALK mailing list which
discusses issues surrounding the domain name deactivation process.
I felt it appropriate as the issue did surface here a few days ago.
The note below was posted by Chris Clough, the Network Solutions, Inc.
Director of Communications in order to provide some insight with
regard to the process and our efforts to both improve as well as
streamline the system.
