Noted. Thank you very much.
I will do as you suggest and notify hostmaster@ when and If I come
upon any such.
However you mentioned that I could sign something in order to get
direct access to the whole Afrinic WHOIS data base (which I already
do in the case of some other RIRs). Maybe I could be of most help
by getting that and then programatically searching for all such
cases (which I imagine would not be all that hard to do).
Where do I sign up for (as you put it) Afrnic WHOIS "mirroring"?
