Re: [registrars] SERIOUS Registry issue

I can verify the same - it might be a glitch or it could be that the domain
JUST got deleted today, but the zone servers haven't updated yet, but that
would only work if the domain was deleted during its lifetime or in the
first 5 days of creation, non?

I noticed a similar situation last month when byte.org went AWOL. It was
deleted and re-registered in the morning, but it took until ~5:00EST for the
root servers to change because of the delay in publishing - it was almost 12
hours before everything got sync'ed and I realized that I no longer
controlled the name.
