Re: more Internic nightmare

  • From: Randy Bush
  • Date: Tue Mar 23 18:28:03 1999

hypotheses:
  o the whois and zone data are needed for administrative and operational
    purposes
  o slime are abusing those data for spamming etc., which denizens of this
    list seem to hate almost as much as they hate nsi
  o slime are watching zone/whois changes to send immediate spam to new
    registrants 'use our wonderful services'
  o slime are doing massive domain squatting hoping to then extort high
    prices from more legitimate applicants
  o ...

if the above were true, and i believe that they are, what would the oh so
brilliant and deeply experienced in large scale production systems readers
of this list do to responsibly yet strongly inhibit such slimeful activity?

think about it seriously.  i suspect there are no easy answers.
