Cameroon *.CM wildcard--it's baaack ICANN

Today the wildcard is back in all but one of the CM name servers, again pointing at the same server in Canada that doesn't identify itself but has a big link farm of Overture pay-per-click links.

Also, Appolinaire Noumbi, who identifies himself as the Chairman, Federation of Cameroonian Engineers, has posted a most peculiar personal page at Circle ID.

I still think that it is not a fundamentally bad idea for Cameroon to take advantage of its typographic proximity to .COM, but an anonymous junk parking page is not the way to do it.
