Re: Broken domain statistics...

Additionally there is a problem where the InterNIC refuses to remove DNS
entries even when the DNS site requests it.  For example:

# whois
Cyber Promotions, Inc (CYBERPROMO-DOM)
   8001 Castor Avenue  Suite #127
   Philadelphia, PA 19152
   Domain Name: CYBERPROMO.COM
   Administrative Contact, Technical Contact, Zone Contact:
      Wallace, Sanford  (SW1708)  [email protected]
   Billing Contact:
      Wallace, Sanford  (SW1708)  [email protected]

   Domain servers in listed order:

# whois

   3601 Pelham
   Dearborn, MI 48124
   Netname: NET99-BLK4
   Netblock: -
   Maintainer: AGIS

# whois 
New Mellenium Cafe (NETBLK-NEW-MEL) NEW-MEL -

Both AGIS and New Millenium would glady have the entries dropped if they
could.  Particularly since New Millenium is not able to use the to date due to anti-spam attacks :-(
