I wish parents had the guts to follow though with the complaints
procedures from RFC 1033. The DNS would be a much better place
if they did. All of the TLD's are subject to RFC 1033.
These are the suggested steps you should take if you are having
problems that you believe are caused by someone else's name server:
1. Complain privately to the responsible person for the domain. You
can find their mailing address in the SOA record for the domain.
2. Complain publicly to the responsible person for the domain.
3. Ask the NIC for the administrative person responsible for the
domain. Complain. You can also find domain contacts on the NIC in
the file NETINFO:DOMAIN-CONTACTS.TXT
4. Complain to the parent domain authorities.
5. Ask the parent authorities to excommunicate the domain.
