faked .per and .nic domains aren't hurting anyone and Eugene
has stopped knocking legitimate domains down.

MCI and Sprint, however, have dissapointed me.  Their security
contacts are not responding (IMHO) appropriately.

Hmm.. you might want to talk to Alternic's direct upstream (Sprint anyway):

 9  sl-osd-1-s1-t1.sprintlink.net (  103 ms  103 ms  102 ms
10  sea-nile.seanet.com (  134 ms  120 ms  103 ms
11  alternic-sea.seanet.com (  112 ms  177 ms  112 ms
12  mx.alternic.net (  116 ms  114 ms  115 ms

Knowing Sprint's names assigned to their customers border interfaces, it
APPEARS that seanet is Eugene's upstream.

I have a hard time believing that Eugene still doesn't realize
how serious this all is.  And yet he's playing up press coverage
of it at his web site, and still posting around lists apparently
blase about it.

It is nearly unbelievable, isn't it.
