As far as that is concerned, OpenNIC does not do that. I imagine legal
action would be required to get us to remove them as well.

As I am sure you can tell we have servers all over the world and thus
are somewhat protected from that. Also, our servers resolve all of
ICANN and OpenNIC (plus some peers) so there is no downside to using us,
as far as I can tell :P

At least, I think that is what you mean.

RE: Gmail, I finally ditched it for hosting my own email and domain. I
was too afraid at first but I finally trusted myself and it is working
out great! :)

I'm not sure how long you have been with OpenNIC, but welcome none the
less! Let us know if you have any questions :)
