Register.com CHEATING Continues!!

Since my last public post about Register.com and their cheating, TITS.COM has 
been removed from the root servers, but is still listed as registered to 
someone at Register.com at nsiregistry - http://www.nsiregistry.com/

A backgrounder on this issue...

On or about Jun-8-1999 TITS.COM shows up in the root servers and is shown 
registered to someone at Register.com. While registrars may have different 
rules in regards to domain names they accept, this is NOT the issue in this 

The issue is how could someone register TITS.COM through Register.com when the 
average person can't. Try to register TITS.anything at Register.com and your 
*request* is *immediately* rejected. So if the average person can't even get 
beyond the opening screen at Register.com, then how could TITS.COM been 
registered there??

It turns out that Register.com was cheating and giving some registrants 
(possibly themselves) preference in registering domain names that the average 
person couldn't through their system. Their cheating is well documented. Even 
though TITS.COM was removed from the root servers (probably by NSI), the fact 
remains that it's still registered to someone at Register.com.

Bottom line is that Register.com continues to cheat since they've not deleted 
TITS.COM from the .COM registry.
