Their interface looks like it was designed by a newbie, and it's using
ASP (GASP!) but on the other hand it works in Firefox quite well.
Especially after I ad-blocked all the flash on their site.
The transfers work well, I got a confirmation email from them minutes
after I got the ISOC confirmation email. They also tell you exactly
what to do to make the transfer work, including a link to the ISOC
I emailed support about the name I want on the receipt and they
replied usually within a day. Not the quickest but reasonable.
I didn't experience any of the other registrars. No newsletter. I'm
not sure if I opted out of it or did anything special (I automatically
opt out of anything when I sign up for accounts).
I don't work for or otherwise affiliated with any Israeli registrar.

renew it myself unless someone contacts me by mid-December and takes

If no one wants it, I will let it expire. When I do, some of those
nasty old domain reclaimer companies are probably going to get it. If
you're interested, you have a better act now.
