You're probably right.

I see that SnortSnarf now has some contact links, including mine, and
also the geektools whois proxy that seems pretty good.
I was rooting around and find that there are about 40 "whois.nic.TLD"
(out of some 250 TLDs) (many of which are in geektools list) which work if
you can resolve a name. Maybe I'll try some more iterating on
whois.x.y.z.TLD, whois.y.z.TLD etc. though for unresolved names rwhois
seems the best if implemented since it can link through to hosting
providers etc.
