I read somewhere (but do not recall where) that .info registrations made through Dotster are being registered TO Dotster by mistake -- and that it has to be set to the actual registrant. What's the story here?

I registered a .info domain (a pretty obscure last name). It was charged to my card and I see the .info domain in my account manager. I received the standard email registration receipt.

. . . HOWEVER. . . I see in the whois, someone else's name as registrant. It DOES show registered through Dotster and there are Dotster nameservers. However, the registrant name is an individual's name -- not Dotster, Inc. -- and the email contact address is a Yahoo address.

Any idea? Of course I have to call Dotster, but they have been closed for the weekend, and I am damned curious what this is all about -- and was compelled to ask on this board.
