I'm willing to talk to him, I have  before and I can again. I just know that
on this issue,  by talking to him,  I'd be only making sure  that he'd never
hand out the domain.

I have. You compromized with having him control (very badly) the DNS and the
web pages. I said I  didn't agree, you said it was the  best you thought you
could do, I left it at that.

You can actually transfert the domain to a registar like opensrs and all Sam
needs to do is to click on a URL to confirm the transfert.
That solution is my prefered one since it doesn't involve netsol in any way.

That said, you are doing it, so you get to pick :-)
