I realize it's possible to temporarily "steal" anything from a financial identity to a parking space. But it isn't clear to me how or why any third-party is able to provide a more convincing case (for ownership) then the owners listed.
As a point of information it might be helpful to know how the system is flawed and/or why the safeguards are so lax. Simply put, it isn't clear to me that ownership was transferred so I don't understand how someone is able to hold your site hostage while all proof of ownership (care-custody-control) rests with "you".
Well, the name currently listed on whois for is Fred Meczywor . My name is not Fred Meczywor - nor do I live in Adams, MA. I'm not sure how you can say it doesn't look like the name and address haven't changed.
