Bradley Norrish alleges errors on this web site

Bradley Norrish sent me an email during the week alleging various errors on this web site and
requesting that I take down the web site and send him an apology to the DNS list.

Here is the email I wrote in response:

“From: Josh Rowe <josh @email.nu>
To: Brad Norrish <brad @brad.com.au>
Subject: RE: whatsinaname misleading information
Date: Sun, 21 Mar 2004 12:10:36 +1100

Dear Mr Norrish,

WITHOUT PREJUDICE

Regarding your email with the subject line “whatsinaname misleading information” sent to me on 16 March, 2004 you allege that the www.whatsinaname.com.au/slammers/ web site contains “an extraordinary number of errors” which are “false, slanderous and misleading information” and make various demands.

The information on the web site is of public interest. I do not intend to take down the web site or apologise to you.

Thank you for pointing out the alleged errors on the web site. I would appreciate you letting me know if you believe there are any other alleged errors on the web site.

I have taken care, and have carefully verified information on the web site. While the information provided on the web site is considered to be true and correct at the date of publication, changes in circumstances after the time of publication may impact on the accuracy of the information. If you are aware of any changes to the information then I invite you to let me know.

With regards to the six alleged errors you specified in your email:

1. The email addresses jason@di.com.au is “non existent” – I received an email with the subject line “Error on your drawing” from Mr Jason Namour on 3 March 2004 admitting to the use of this email address. Multiple posts to the “DNS list” from Mr Namour are also from this email address.

a. Please confirm that this email address is no longer active and then I will independently verify this information. Once verified I will update the diagram from “di.com.au -> provides email address:
jason@di.com.au -> Jason ‘Magz’ Namour” to read “di.com.au -> provided email address: jason@di.com.au -> Jason ‘Magz’ Namour”

2. The email addresses wy@di.com.au is “non existent” – This email address was listed in the AUNIC database under “NIC” handles WY48-AU and WY50-AU which were both created in June 2001.

a. Please confirm that this email address is no longer active and then I will independently verify this information. Once verified I will update the diagram from “di.com.au -> provides email address:
wy@di.com.au -> Wilson Young” to read “di.com.au -> provided email address: wy@di.com.au -> Wilson Young”.

3. “I am not associated with registrations.com” – The web site makes no mention of registrations.com. If however you meant to refer to iregistrations.com then I can provide the following information: the
registrant for the domain name iregistrations.com is Internet Registrations Worldwide Pty Ltd – Peter Jacobs. Chesley Rafferty is the director of Internet Registrations Worldwide Pty Ltd. Gregg Moscoe posted an email to the Neustar policy forum mailing list on 3 June 2003 which alleges your association with iregistrations.com. The domain name bradleynorrish.com is registered through iregistrations.com and has name servers of ns1.registrations.com.au and ns2.registrations.com.au; you are the registrant for registrations.com.au. The domain name contact details for iregistrations.com lists “Level 2, 297 Hay St, East Perth WA 6004″ which is also common with the registration address for irww.com; you are the registrant for irww.com. The previous registrant for irww.com was Peter Jacobs who is the current registrant for iregistrations.com. The domain name irww.com.au is registered to Internet Registrations Worldwide Pty Ltd with yourself as the registrant contact.

4. “Alex Restovski is no longer a director of Diverse Internet” – The web site makes no mention of Alex Restovski.

a. If however you meant to refer to Alex Ristovski then please confirm that is the case and then I will independently verify this information. Once verified I will update the diagram from “Alexander Ristovski -> Director of -> Diverse Internet Pty Ltd” to read “Alexander Ristovski -> ex-Director of -> Diverse Internet Pty Ltd”.

5. “Paul Fox is not general manager of Domain Names NZ and never was” – The web site refers to a ComputerWorld news article titled “Commissioner wades in over DomainNamesNZ” by Paul Brislen on 31 October 2002, the author makes reference to ” DomainNamesNZ … general manager Paul Fox … “.

a. If this news article is incorrect then your issue is with the publisher of ComputerWorld. Please notify me if you are able to have the news article changed and I will update my diagram accordingly. I also note that you seem to have good understanding of the management structure of Domain Names NZ, a subsidiary of Domain Names Australia run by Chesley Rafferty.

6. “irww.com address incorrect” – This allegation is unclear, which irww.com address do you refer to? The two addresses on the diagram are: “Level 2, 297 Hay St, East Perth WA 6004″ and “1040 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10018 USA”

a. Please provide the new address and then I will independently verify this information. Once verified then I will update the old addresses on the diagram from “irww.com -> Registration postal address -> Level 2, 297 Hay St, East Perth WA 6004″ to read “irww.com -> previous Registration postal address -> Level 2, 297 Hay St, East Perth WA 6004″ and “irww.com -> Registration postal address -> 1040 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10018 USA” to read “irww.com -> previous Registration postal address -> 1040 Avenue of the Americas New York, NY 10018 USA”.

Kind Regards

First-aid kit probe turns up heat (Bradley Norrish)

Filed under: Bradley Norrish — Josh @ 11:50 pm

IP Australia has a press clipping from The West Australian dated 9/3/2004 regarding
Bradley Norrish’s Employment Protection Australia Pty Ltd.

” …

REF: 1503IPA27 p28

First-aid kit probe turns up heat. Consumer Protection and Australia Post
recently seized approximately 150 unsolicited letters from Employment
Protection Australia, due to concerns businesses would think the letter was
from a government agency and that they would be fined if they did not
purchase one of the $259 first aid kits it advertises. Employment Protection
Australia director Bradley Norrish has previously been targeted by authorities
for sending unsolicited letters to small businesses. In November 2002, the
Federal Court found that Internet Registrations of Australia, of which Mr
Norrish was a director, had falsely represented that it was responsible for
registering Internet domain names. Mr Norrish is also a business associate of
Chesley Rafferty, a director of Domain Names Australia, which is currently
facing similar allegations in the Federal Court.
