While there have been "reported irregularities", the person making the
report (Alan Brown) is a court-proven liar, and has done this sort of
thing in the past. An examination of the records shows no irregularities,
and the entities assigned still exist. All the facts are already publicly
known. The claim of being "hijacked/disused" is false.
It is also publicly known that Mr. Brown, Mr. Sullivan, and Mr. Vixie have
blacklisted companies that aren't spammers in the past. Both Mr. Brown and
Mr. Vixie have been forced to retract those false claims by lawsuits, and
have risked or actually lost significant amounts of personal assets in
Mr. Vixie's obvious malice for Av8 Internet is plain to see, as is his
association with SORBS, Brown, Sullivan, and other disreputable
Av8 has been through the legal "mill" and hired lawyers on the subject,
but that does not make it an expert on lawsuits. If Av8 were "expert" on
lawsuits, we'd be able to practice law ourselves instead of hiring
Av8 is a expert on Open Relay operations, and on providing internet
services to customers. However, it is unclear what Mr. Vixie's expertise
is actually in, other than name-calling, and making disparaging
alterations on another companies trademarks. I have seen little else. I
suppose Vixie is also an expert at making false claims and using
blacklists to block companies that aren't spammers.

actually i think the reason dv8's ip address listed on SORBS is due to
reported irregularities in the trust deed for that address block, rather
than due to reported open relay activities. maybe dv8 will eventually
sue somebody, so that a court can sort it all out and all the facts can
be objectively and publically known.
a note for harald and the others-- i've been lawsuit-threated by experts,
and i can tell you from that experience, dv8 appears to not be an expert.
