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?

	EH?

	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?

	Ehud
