"When Nominet was first created it was a paragon of rectitude in an otherwise lawless landscape. ..."
I have some experience of dealing with Nominet.
At one time we used to say "Nominuts", but that epithet lost popularity as it gradually became clear that what we thought was incompetence was, in fact, just greed and malice in more or less equal measure.
