newsman is far from being overloaded. :-)

The delay in processing the request is caused by delays in getting a
reply back from a whois query against the InterNIC.

The reason for the 'maybe' reply seems to be a screwed up record for
netserv.com. Looks like "netserv.com" is being returned as the
country code on the registration address. rs.internic.net seems to be
having problems right now; I can't do a query to verify this, and the
web server there is also dropping connections before throwing data back.
