Re: shuts down entire data center?

I'm not sure how on-topic this is/was, but considering long thread
and different opinions that were expressed before, I believe some
here may want to have additional information I recently read:

The article author talked to both nectartech and godaddy and
is also including copies of emails from nectartech side as to
their conversations with godaddy. The last one (on how domain
can be reactivated) you may find most interesting if you're not
otherwise familiar with godaddy's policies:

Also here is a quote from godaddy that also seems on-topic as
to what was discussed on this thread at nanog before:
"The phone call was not up to our high standards and it's being addressed internally. The Abuse Department is available 24/7, 365 days a year."

At the end article it says "Update 18 January 2006: NectarTECH owner
Nick Mariani dropped us a line to let us know that Go Daddy senior management is talking to him. Although we profess no ownership of
a crystal ball, we're guessing these two old pals will ultimately
stick together."

Since I also "profess no ownership of crystal ball", I used my
favorite net tool (you surely can guess by now what it is). The
results (as of January 20th) are as follows:

[DOMAIN whois information for NECTARTECH.COM ]

BTW - the read comments at the end of the article may also be quite interesting if you want to get an additional point of view on nectartech...
