    Never happened to me so far. Why not verify the email immediately after buying the domain or changing the WHOIS information?

    Agreed, but when ICANN announced the changes last year, I was imagining that I would see lots of domains blocked from the beginning of the year. It is October now, and as far as I can recall, that is the first site I have seen blocked.

    They have been blocking them all year, we ran into this problem at the beginning of the year. We do use actual email addresses, but a unique one for each site gets interesting to manage :) (pretty difficult to monitor 1k+ email addresses for ICANN verification).

    Once you verify the link, site is back live within a couple hours max.
