Using perekli#trktu.bitnet[at]devnull.spamcop.net for statistical tracking.

Someone playing games here, just where is the .bitnet top level domain?

I'd report that to ripe except I don't have a working email address to them.

Good Lord. I thought bitnet was dust. A little Googling and I'm confused. A paper on interconnectivity between the various networks is found at


It looks like perekli[at]trktu.bitnet is in the correct format but it just doesn't work through email. A zillion other undeliverable addresses are listed at


I guess csirt[at]ulakbim.gov.tr would be the contact for amendments to the RIPE records of that netbloc.
