    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

    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.
