Doh. Didn't realize it was the same old thing. This seems like such a
trivial problem to solve...
a) force guardian (crypt-pw seems the most reliable) on all new domain
b) with NSI's next spam to their customer database, lead people forcibly
to guardian (crypt-pw again)
c) use a mail system that scales, so that 1 week delays don't happen.
One good thing I've noticed in the last week or so - if someone attempts
to register a domain, or modify a domain, to use your nameservers, your
nameserver contacts get an email. Of course, in typical NSI style, the
email is non-intuitive. And in typical NSI style, although it says you
must "ack" for it to go through, it goes through anyway. But it's a
start... at least you know that someone is trying to use your dns.
