While I know this is true (I've seen it and applaud
efforts to have accurate POC information for everything),
I am amused by the maint record for AS 2885:

: chops.icp.net-MHRC ; NT-AS2885
mntner:      MAINT-AS2885
descr:       People authorized to make changes for AS2885

since I believe that Jessica Yu now reads email at ANS...

Hm, what about the "complete" ones?  There is a striking
comparison to be made here:

: chops.icp.net-MHRC ; whois 2885
RA-NAP (ASN-NAP-FOUR)

between what the InterNIC folks have in their database and
what you have in yours.

Gee, who's got the RIGHT information???

(Automation wants to know...)

Well, this is good news, actually.
