Whois spam

I ran whois on microsoft.com. My whois by default returns a substring match for the search term, and a lot of names have microsoft.com in them. It's hard to pick a favorite:


hughw@gx150:~$ whois microsoft.com | sed -n -e "s/Server Name: \(.*\)/\\1/p"

For completeness here's the whois version:


hughw@gx150:~$ whois --version
Version 4.7.11ubuntu1.
