Re: Contact handles disappearing mysteriously from the whois database!
Two things have occured over the past week that have lead to changes in whois. First, there is a bug in the whois generation code that generates the indexes that whois uses. The information is still correct in the database that whois is generated from. The fix is in QA now and should be in operations shortly. Second, in the advent of the registry coming operational to other testbed registrars, we cleaned up a number of hosts that where orphaned (parent domain of the nameserver did not exist). Thus, if you had an orphaned host listed as a nameserver, it has been removed as a nameserver to the domain.
