Or just coincidence? First and foremost, we're aware of their past spammy behaviour, but as a spam e-mail a few minutes ago shows, they're deliberately doing this, so are well aware of it.

This does sort of explain why so many criminals are flocking to them for domains and hosting - as a reply from them to one of my fellow researchers shows, simply won't do anything about it unless the court forces them.

The following for example, which is a scam e-mail I received, points to, which was also registered through;
