Whois being Hammered

talon wrote in to send us a link to an article about Abuse of the Whois Database. Apparently whois requests have doubled every 20 days for the last couple months. It's presumably spam harvesters and the like doing it. The best part is that 32% of the traffic was generated by one company. That one company did more whois requests than europe, though NSI isn't naming names.
