Ok, find a name with irregular whois info that you wish to acquire, get several individuals to complain and then post your results here. Lets see if your theory proves to be true.I already have and detailed it here over two weeks ago.
registrant email: firstname.lastname@example.org#0
Same false email address for other contacts. The fax number is also suspicious. And a traceroute points to ICANN-IANA-L-root server. Do as we say, not as we do is ICANN's motto. More than two weeks later (I actually first pointed this out months ago and Kent hasn't corrected it, though I wouldn't be surprised if it just went to his killfile) and Joker, which apparenty has many addresses munged like this, including their own:
hasn't done anything about it, hasn't received a public reprimand, hasn't lost their accreditation. Feel free to also rat them out from the link found here. I don't expect that John Berryhill's suggested fiddle will work in this case as ICANN seems selective about who they go after, but I'd like to own either of those names. Kent Crispin certainly doesn't deserve at-large as much as me, let him have icannatlarge.com which may be coming free, and I'm known as a joker.
There is no point to trophy names other than the "feel good" factor especially if there is no sizeable traffic being directed to the name such as this example.Agreed. Nevertheless the hype continues.
The majority of domain name owners will not let their newly acquired name sell for a reasonable price (not that visosite.com is worth anything) . Instead they will hold out for the dream sale that never emerges. Visiting many of the "domain for sale" sites will validate this.Agreed again. Actually, while I don't know if functional names are in the majority of all registered names, I suspect the registrants of a majority of the functional names have no intention of selling their names.
By the way, look up VISO at www.uspto.gov. You will find that Silicon Graphics, Inc. has interest in this mark.As I pointed out, it was an address used for spam purposes. Why woud spammers respect such niceties? -g
