Spoof, noun, A humorous parody. I wasn't referring to spoofing
(generically, forging data)
Perhaps I should try to end this thread, having (hopefully) made my point,
which is presumably the same point that "terrorists.net" wanted to make,
about how the registry search should and should not behave.

I don't see an argument in favour of free-form searches in this database.
Spoof entries like these, however, are an argument against them.
