That makes considerable sense. You should be able to call in, say "roll it back", and have it stay rolled back for a few days until someone can investigate. If people like Melbourne IT are going to claim they can't act on weekends, it might also be sensible not to allow transfers to be processed between Thursday and Sunday, though honestly I think if you are going to be a registrar, you are going to have to deal with problems over weekends. One more disturbing problem here -- it seems (based on external evidence) that someone managed to fake out the system. Although Verisign and Melbourne IT seem to think that the transfer was approved, neither Dotster nor Panix have any record at all of it. Dotster's records make them think they are still the registrar for panix.com. It appears someone cracked the system, though whether by exploiting protocol problems or in some other way isn't clear at all. Perry
