    You've got it wrong. Neulevel.bz points to Neulevel.biz.

    Check facts, then post.

    In search of an archived version I tried archive.org. No luck. Then Google. No luck. Google does have one single solitary hit for neulevel.bz though, and a very good one it is. -g

    THIS IS A PRANK blown out of proportion!

    That quoted whois output doesn't say that Network Solutions is the registrant of neulevel.bz, it says it's the registrar. Please tell me everyone here understands the difference!

    In fact, the whois server at NetSol says that Afilias is the registrant of neulevel.bz, so Verisign is just the go-between. You can't blame this one on NSI unless you're one of the trademark-facists who thinks registrars are supposed to vet every domain name registered through them. The whois listing:

    Afilias Inc. (JKTPIJQWYD)
    660 Newtown/Yardley Road
    Newtown, PA 19067

    Domain Name: NEULEVEL.BZ

    Administrative Contact:
    Afilias Inc. (CDYDRPXLCO) sinnerg@vrx.net

    Database last updated on 14-May-2002 21:11:13 EDT.

    Domain servers in listed order:


    Also, I'm suspicious of the Admin Contact e-mail for this domain. Why would Afilias (or Verisign, for that matter,) use vrx.net for e-mail? The admin contact for afilias.com uses afilias.com.

    A Google search for "sinnerg@vrx.net" turns up a few posts to Usenet groups about patents, and a subscriber list for IFWP mailing list. (Everyone remembers the IFWP, right?)

    I don't think Afilias or Verisign is the real registrant of neulevel.bz . This is just somebody messing with our minds.

    Well, its been a while since we've heard from the cybersquatter himself, JD Sallen, any news to report on your losing case with the District Court for Corinthians.com? I hope you've learned your lesson not to register the trademarks of others.

    well while we're on the subject lets have a look at the whois record for netsol.biz

    Nice work Mark. I'm surprised that you had time to do a little cybersquatting when you're so busy sending your scams to unsuspecting accounts payable clerks across Australia.
