"We are refreshing this report with data collected after June,
2008 to examine changes. One thing that has not changed is the fact
that most abuse is concentrated at a minority of providers...
" So what happened to the Registrars not on the new list? For
starters, Beijing Innovative Networks and Joker were issued Breach
Notices by ICANN. They were basically told to clean up their
operation or risk loosing accreditation which would effectively
take them out of the domain industry. From what we've been told by
ICANN they took the notices very seriously and made changes to
their operation. TodayNIC contacted us directly and assured us that
they were aware of some issues and were working aggressively to fix
them. After various revelations about Dynamic Dolphin surfaced and
successful lawsuits against Scott Richter concluded, their name
came up less and less. Directi furiously defended themselves in
light of this report and others, but their presence in these
statistics was likely driven by two factors: a contract with the
failed EstDomains and certain resellers who were abusing Directi's
service. Since then Directi has terminated thousands of illicit
domains. Moniker was highly critical of KnujOn's report but
apparently was influenced by it one way or another because their
counts dropped as well. Intercosmos/DIRECTNIC has been suspending
every domain found with a policy violation. The change at The
Nameit Co. is the only unknown factor at this time."
