Re: Suggestion: Add contact entry to whois

Wow, Bob is angry.  I must be doing something right. :-)

Anyway, the proposal relates to domains registered with InterNIC and other
registries that maintain top-level information (country domains, ARIN, RIPE,
APNIC, etc.)  As such, I am referring to entries like:

Free Community Network (FCN3-DOM)
   PO Box 191 Station E
   Toronto, ON M6H 4E2

   Domain Name: FCN.NET

   Administrative Contact:
      Allisat, Bob  (BA502)  tor@WTV.NET
      (416) 534-1999 (FAX) n/a
   Technical Contact, Zone Contact:
      (770) 652-9537 (FAX) (770) 977-4816
   Billing Contact:
      Allisat, Bob  (BA502)  tor@WTV.NET
      (416) 534-1999 (FAX) n/a

Gee... Looks like Bob published some information for that domain. :-)
