Re: [NIC-981207.1418] whois for 'server SERVER-HANDLE' not returning information?

i complained to [email protected] about this a few nights ago, but
by the time they got around to replying to my mail, it had been fixed.

judging from the response, i think it's more likely that they're having
problems with the feature than killing it.

Dear Customer,

Thank you for contacting Network Solutions, Inc., InterNIC
Registration Services.

This appears to be an error, as a similar search does return such a 
list of domains when checked.
