I agree, I should have RE-CHECKED the domains before I sent the
message to the list. I've learned.
However, the facts still stand. InterNIC registered the domains to
the Microsoft nameservers, without having to clear it. That concerns
What if I registered a domain against your nameservers and then
advertised it? What would your nameservers do with the lame delegations?
I've had lame delegations really mess up my DNS servers. They spend all
their time asking the top-level servers, who just point back to them.

I'll admit, the Operations value of this message is a bit low.
Well, two of those domains don't exist now and one appears to be
totally unrelated to Microsoft -- so either there were two deletions
and a transfer just now, or else the risk is people forwarding
admittedly marginally relevant things to mailing lists without
checking on the facts.
Our time is the scarcest resource...
