rbl.maps.vix.com finally gone awol?

According to this, vix.com shut down the service in 2007.  Now vix.com redirects to domainnamesales, which I assume aren’t nice people.

The reason I noticed is this:

I tried to submit something to freedb.org, and it bounced because of maps.vix.com.  So perhaps somebody … not very nice … finally decided to start answering in the affirmative to all requests?

In which case: Nicely played, scammers.  This is probably going to drive a lot of traffic to your site while people are trying to figure out what’s going on.
