ICANN requires registrars to verify the domain info once a year. I just went
through this with GoDaddy. I think the registrars see this as an
opportunity to market services. Different registrars bungle their marketing
effort in different ways. GoDaddy sent me instructions on what to do in
order to correct errors, but had absolutely nothing on how to proceed if
the information was correct. So I viewed this as something they could take
advantage of in order to get me to their site for a "hard sell" campaign.
