TLD .ES screw up

So my questions now:

Does any one know a direct way to reach the InterNIC technical staff to solve
this kind of urgent problems?

Flaming them on NANOG seems to work, but you get singed in the process
also. Try He seemed helpful. From him:

"Hostmaster receives at least 20K pieces of mail a day. If you have an
operational issue of this nature, feel free to send it to
The people who are responsible for monitoring the roots also read that box."

Let us know how [un]responsive is!

Shouldn't there be a specific set up of procedures, forms and communication
channels between the managers of the root zone and the TLD managers?

Apparently they're still drafting those.

Any help will be appreciated.

Please take quick action on this and report back!

We will wait a couple more hours before escalating this to IANA and
TLD list.

I also had problems with InterNIC (I manage AM), but email to is/was helpful.
Do not write to hostmaster - it's a black hole...
