[comments-whois] comments on whois-report (mostly rejections)
1.) from my experience most of the allegations of false data are
wrong or at least a kind of attack from people having a problem
either with the registrar, mostly with the registrant (we have
allegations even against people working for ICANN and even
2.) joker.com, my company as registrar, insists that allegations of
false data is proven by adding the return-letter from post-office
which shows that the address is really false.
3.) Asking the accused people (B.2.) to prove the innocence is
strange and from my point of view new in democratic systems, there
may be reasons to do so, but this are limited.
4.) The standard form at internic is of no use if ICANN people just let
the messages be forwarded to the registrars without having a check.
It results in being ignored by the registrars because of the high
percentage of garbage (it is even not filtered for duplications, we
receive up to 10 complains of same content).
5.) Deleting a domain with false data is not reasonable, if the
registrant really uses the domain, he/she will register it again within
hours and the mess starts again, even worse it looks as the registrar
did not do anything...joker.com "freezes" such domains in a way
everybody using whois can see it and the domain can not be used,
we think that is much better.
6.) C.2 is just an assembly of words with no meaning in the real
world. I am sorry, but for me some of the recommendations look the
from my experience the number of false allegations is bigger that
the number of really false data (perhaps because most cases of the
latter are ignored). It should be imposed to those starting the
process to prove that the address is wrong, not the other way round.
at bulk whois
7.) It will have to be checked with european law if that is allowed and
under which circumstances, not to say with law in other non-us
countries. I did not find anything about that in the recommendations.
Omitting that is a sign of limited political overview.
