It's a hold because the address data is bad. The problem is the contact email for the domain is a kuro5hin.org email address, so as long as they have the domain frozen, I can't receive email there. I'm trying to convince them that emailing me a document to sign is not going to work unless they either unfreeze the domain or send it to a different address. It's Kafkaesque and the registrar's support has been terrible, so who knows how long it's going to take.
I'm 8501, and I know I made this account before December 1999. The earliest comment that seems to be attached to my account is from July 2000, but I know it was made before that.
