rooster Posted October 1, 2005 Share Posted October 1, 2005 Oh wizened and worthy warriors; I’ve just begun to try manual reporting. I want to go about it the right way so’s to be effective, *where possible*, and not just make matters worse by spewing gibberish at the wrong abuse desks. I am not sure where the, “Technical Contact”, (as shown in ‘whois’ reports), stacks in the hierarchy of reporting abuse. In fact, it seems a bit odd that anyone ‘ogling’ porn sites would be of a mind to actually pursue technical issues; but, that’s just me. Regarding porn sites; I have been getting a few porn 'spamvertizements' with links to domains underwritten by, veriSign-Melbourne IT. The, “Registrant”, is the same for all eleven of the most recent batch (although I ‘suss’ he’s actually a disinterested 3rd party), and the Tech Name/Tech Email is the same, too; to whit: YahooDomains TechContact, <domain.tech[at]YAHOO-INC.COM>. I gather porn spamming is contrary to Section 10(g) of: “Yahoo! Web Hosting Terms of Service”, but I don’t understand the practical difference between the role of Melbourne IT as the domain’s Registrar of Record, and that of, “Yahoo Domains – Technical Contact”. To a newbie like me, it looks as though the domain is registered in two places. Where I hope this leads is: if I submit the complete spam, and the interNIC Registration information, to <domain.tech[at]YAHOO-INC.COM>, might they sever their connection to the domain and thereby open the way for a wdprs report to interNIC? Or is there something more Yahoo routinely does that could result in having the domain nuked? I've read Section 3 of Yahoo's Registration Agreement; I just don't understand what they actually *do* in these instances Moderator edit: [at] replaced with [at] in email references due to spiders.
