Dean, Dean... and I had such high hopes for you.

His assertion, that the interNIC ought to follow it's own published
procedures and follow up on reports of bogus data, attempting
correction, and in extremis, deleting such records, seems to stand on
it's own.

It's also apparent from others' comments that they do not, which does
not surprise me at all, given _my_ past experiences with the InterNIC.

Have A Nice Day, Dean.
