Netnames whois Wednesday humour
It's a bit of fun
Netnames' whois server is doing funny things to your favourite computer companies. Run a search on its site for, say, AOL.com, and you'll find a list of interesting abuse where server names should be.
One example: "AOL.COM.SHOULD.BE.ZAPPED.BY.THE.DEPARTMENTOFJUSTICE.NET".
We did some other searches, starting, naturally with Microsoft.
We are still looking about, but this is all we have found so far.
But while this is all good stuff, we can't help shake the feeling that a grand opportunity has been wasted. So please send us suggestions on what you think would be funnier - we'll run them in readers' letters or something.
The threads are merely sub-domains of other
legitmate domains. i.e. monster.org owns the sub-domain microsoft.com. So if you fancy putting up your own, now you know how.
Incidentally, the header in the source code reads "File add_serv.html is for provide to registated users some new services, such not accessable for not registrate users." It would seem that Netnames is unable to spell registated or accessable propearly. They must be illeterate.
