nic.com was one of the older ISPs in Northern NJ. I think at the time I moved in, it was the only one with dialup numbers in my local calling area so I didn't have to pay any extra phone charges. It has always been a pretty reliable ISP over the years and only lost email once because of a cracker attack. But all good things have to come to an end. I switched over to cable internet so my nic.com dialup was just a backup in case of a cable outage. Since I'm now done moving mailing lists, website registrations, etc from my old email address over to my domain and since I've signed up for inexpensive dialup at Access-4-Free, there is no longer a reason to keep the ISP account.
Anyway, not that anyone uses this email address any more but if you are, stop using email@example.com. My current email address can be found on my user info.
