I believe this script is out of date and I would not use this script without doing a thorough
review/update. For example, is reported to be reserved but whois clearly shows that
it is allocated to Xplornet Communications Inc. Then when I remove the reserved allocation from the
script, the abuse email returned is rather than


dig +short TXT
and then
whois as22995

would have gotten me the same abuse email address as what I originally found.
