Also while we're on ip hijacking subject as I mentioned there is a new way it
has been done where instead of reregistering domains, the actual email 
account is reused by somebody else and where whois at arin is for themost 
part left unchanged (making it difficult for arin to do anything).

Because these cases are difficult to track the original owners and to proof
hijacking or to notice that it happend, it would be nice to stop such 
activity in the first place. So I'd would really be good if somebody from 
earthlink contacts me and I can then tell them privately what names they 
need to "lock" as far as what their customers can request for additional 
emails. Same applies for other ISPs - if you who work for company that 
has in the past bought other large ISPs AND where you still allow new or 
existing customers to get new email accounts at the domains of those old 
companies (i.e. like earthlink is presumably doing with netcom.com), then 
let me know domains and I can tell you what not to allow your customers 
for emails.
