    Re: Accurate in Joker's WHOIS?
    by Anonymous on Friday September 06 2002, @05:29AM (#9101)
    1) Even a deliberately obtuse person such as yourself managed to figure out that the '#0' was a non-semantic suffix. The question is, do you have any evidence that "kent@songbird.com is a bogus email? No, of course you don't.

    2) Fax number is not required; Joker's system fills in a bogus number.

    Bottom line: you are just being a jerk, and you don't have the integrity to apologize.

    OK, let's take this one thing at a time. First, it has nothing to do with semantics, the SMTProtocol knows nothing from semantics, send yourself an email with just about anything appended to it and see if it returns. Go ahead, try it right now, I can wait. Not only do I have no evidence that kent@songbird.com is a bogus address as you allege, I have evidence it is a valid email address, because back before Kent sold his soul I used to write to him and not get a bounce. But that is not what I alleged. If you were paying even moderate attention you would know that I questioned an email address with a trailing: #0. Could I request that you be clearer with what you are alleging I said and what is wrong with it?

    Second, I didn't know that Joker fills in the fax field with a bogus number. If it does it is deliberately entering false data in the WHOIS, which is apparently a no-no. Please provide some evidence that Joker does so and I'll rat them out in a second. Otherwise sit down in the back there with the other drooling morons and shut up. Kent's fax number is confusingly similar to a USPTO trademark number given during the .info sunrise and we can't have that, consumers may get confused and fall right over.

    Third, integrity? Get an identity (you don't even have to get a life) and we'll talk. -g
