Microsoft Registered Domains

I'll admit, the Operations value of this message is a bit low.  But,
it does clarify how the InterNIC's use of automation is allowing people
to register domain names against another company, with no trace of 
who the culprit may have been.  

I thought the correct procedure was to get an ACK/NACK acknowledgement 
from the owner of the DNS servers BEFORE going ahead and registering the
domains.

There's also some humor value as well:
