wtf, how did I get on this list?

edited February 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I got on a list so I can't access WHOIS data, but I've only looked at WHOIS data 2 or 3 times just to see when a domain was registered, I've never even so much as GLANCED at the other info, let alone - email or phone a register.

Welcome to the Network Solutions Registrar WHOIS Server. The IP address from which you have visited the Network Solutions Registrar WHOIS database is contained within a list of IP addresses that may have failed to abide by Network Solutions' WHOIS policy. Failure to abide by this policy can adversely impact our systems and servers, preventing the processing of other WHOIS requests. To see the Network Solutions WHOIS Policy, click on or copy and paste the following URL into your browser: If you feel that you have received this message in error, please contact us at: and include the following information: Whois Query: TGC.NET YOUR IP address is **.***.***.** Date and Time of Query: Tue Feb 07 14:57:55 EST 2006 Reason Code: IE Registry Status: REGISTRAR-LOCK

I'm gonna contact them at the given address, but I'm kinda pissed that I was put on this list to start with. phcuk

    lol @ Reason Code: IE I think this is mostly regarded as a stop-gap measure to prevent people from your domain from spamming requests to them. It's quite possible (if you're on a dynamic host) that someone before you might have abused that ip sometime in the past and flooded their network with requests. So like any kind of preventative measure, they blackholed your ip or ip-block. I doubt mailing them would make too much of a difference, I'd say just do a 3rd party whois search via a shell account or through a proxy :P

    Yeah, I'll prolly end up just using a proxy.

    Hey, forget regular whois: works well, and will find whois for any domain out there.
