Re: [registrars] RE: Whois expiration dates

While we are on the subject of poor data integrity, can you provide an
indication of when Verisign will be correcting the thousands of invalid
email addresses in your whois that continue to show

This question has been raised before, both publicly and privately and I
don't believe that an answer has been forthcoming (although I may have
missed something). As Verisign continues to demonstrate a willingness to
abide by its obligations to ICANN and the registries under its various
contracts, I expect that this data issue will be resolved in an expeditious
manner as well.
