Re: Incompetance abounds at the InterNIC
Yeah, this spawned a whole long thread (on going ... still) on domain policy. As long as you can get free domains, at least temporarily, this will continue to be problem. FWIW, InterNIC has changed whois output and dropped two key fields, "initial creation date" and "current status". That got a lot of gripes too. The real solution is one they don't want to do for some unfathomable reason, pre-payment or online payment for domain names.
