    We got one once, the paper envelope was then returned with lots of junk paper [reply paid by droa] and we never got another.

    Wow Icann did something.

    It's always nice to get at least one item of good news in a day. I guess this is it.

    I've also had the snail mailed fake invoices from them, which I can only suppose is an illegal use of the whois database. I guess their strategy is to land these on the desks of overworked administrators who are more likely than me to rubber stamp them and pass them along for payment. Me? I always put them in the shredder.

    Why did it take so long? I really don't know. Why is it not a permanent shut down? Don't know that either, but at least they're shut down for now.

Dead? No excuse for laying off work.

Working...
