% Looks like the registry is corrupt; My contact information is corrupt

% Lobo Net, rather than our proper locations. I looked up JM2789, but
% it's garbled in a different manner. I wonder if everyone associated
% with a particular domain is garbled in the same way?

I seem to remember a little while back something that happened -- the
InterNIC had a data corruption "along the wire" (their terms, not mine).
They claimed that the registry data itself had not been corrupted. The
symptoms: Totally bogus information in WHOIS requests for the particular
day, fixed by around 6pm or so CDT, as I recall.
I wonder if the problems that certain entities have been experiencing
relate to this "along the wire" data corruption the NIC mentioned didn't
cause any problems?
