whois -a is most commonly seen on BSD systems, and is most definitely

You can query any whois server with query () server
ie: () arin net  works.

This too is dependent on your WHOIS client, and NOT available
(by default) on all UNICES.

fwhois uses whois () server, Whois Classic uses whois -h server

Come on guys, what does this have to do with nanog. Please take the "how
do I man whois" thread, the "we got screwed over by our incompetant dsl
provider" thread, the "can someone help me find some bits in wisconsin"
thread, and the "I can't figure out how noc@ or peering@ works" thread and
CEASE AND DESIST while there is still SOME hope of content making this
list worthy of reading. If you have a complaint about your DSL provider,
TELL IT TO SOMEONE WHO CARES, or maybe (*gasp* here's a thought) vote with
your wallet.

Please, can we just STOP replying to these threads? I know 5 other people
made this request when they first started, but perhaps they were too nice
about it because it is still going on. When your nanog-reading experience
consists of 95% D)elete something is wrong.
