I think a lot of good points have been put forth by you, Phil, as well as by Dean. The problem is that I'm not sure NetSol cares. I've seen a lot of registrations for *legitimate* companies -- backbone providers at that -- with obviously bogus phone numbers like (123) 555-1212 and obviously bogus addresses. What is NSI willing to do about it? Nothing. Of course, the agreement you sign with them says they will revoke domains with bogus contact info. Yeah. Right.
