Here at domain pulse we have posted about the increasing spam problem and ICANN’s promise to clean up this issue. At this point in time there has been no follow up from ICANN, the public complaint made from Knujon anti-spam service has basically been disregarded. When will ICANN act on this matter ?
Now, Knujon founder Garth Bruen has formally requested ICANN to shut down the Beijing-based registrar at the top of the list, Xinnet Bei Gong Da Software. According to a new document that Bruen sent to ICANN this week, none of the WHOIS records in a sample of 11,000 alleged spam sites registered through Xinnet and reported by Knujon to ICANN’s Whois Data Problem Report System were corrected in a six-month period ending in May 2008. In many cases, says the document, Xinnet does not have “any Whois record data for review while the sites are still active.”
