Is the InterNIC really screwed in the head?
- From: Ehud Gavron
- Date: Sun Mar 09 16:38:38 1997
RFC954 specifies WHOIS. Client requests, server sends. Simple, really.
$ whois opus4-hst
Would you like to see registered users of this host?
WHAT??? My whois client is supposed to search for this string
and then do interactive input??? HuH??
$ whois pa aces
(shows a handful of entries)
There are 96 more matches.... would you like these displayed?
Anyone else think this is not only a gross violation of an RFC,
does a disservice to millions of WHOIS-using users out there, and
the final leg of the dissolution of the world?
