See above, notice I said forums, not newsgroups. Forums are typically web
browser driven, not newsreader driven.

The purpose of my original post in this thread was to offer the information
that spammers consider domain names disposable, it's the risk of their
trade, so they will lie on their domain registration applications.
I was not looking for an argument either, nor was I looking for an education
on netiquette. I'm not a newsgroup newbie, I have been reading newsgroups
for many many years. I just hate to post because of all the others I see get
flamed when someone doesn't like their posting style.
As I said before, I was simply trying to be helpful by providing
information. I'm just going to have to go right back to what I have done for
years with newsgroups, read and resist the temptation to post when I have an
answer to someones question. This has gone way OT so I'm all done here. Have
a nice life.
