There is no such thing as the Internic/ARIN registry. There is an Internic
registry operated by Network Solutions. And there is an ARIN registry
operated by ARIN which you can query by

whois -h 128.65 


whois [email protected] 

depending on your whois client.

Who is this "NIC" that you contacted?

Since this block doesn't show up in ARIN's whois database I'll assume that
you are complaining about that fact. If so, why aren't you directing your
complaints to [email protected] or (703) 227-0660 as noted on the ARIN
web pages at ?
