Jason with all due respect we haven't initiated any changes in the
Registrant of the domain name. We especially haven't made any changes
maliciously. At the end of the day NetRegistry has no real vested
interest in seeing this name not being controlled by the rightful person
or persons.

Below is the full WHOIS output for the domain. The date that any
information was last modified on this domain be it contact details, the
Registrant or delegation was 23/02/2005, certainly not this afternoon.
