godaddy spam / abuse suspensions?

Hi gang,

    I am looking into a dns problem. My resolvers are attempting to 
resolve various hosts under "", but it's nameservers 
aren't responding, resulting in many many many repeated queries that end 
up going nowhere. I dug around a bit and the nameservers for the domain 
are "" and so forth. The domain 
registrar is godaddy and it doesn't make a whole lot of sense for them 
to point the nameservers for any domain at non-functioning hosts, and 
these have been dead for at least a few days now that I know about.

Can anyone enlighten me as to what the deal might be here?

Thank you.
