Subject .cn domain age query?
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2009 17:29:56 GMT
(resend, first attempted about 14 hours ago)

I noticed that many spam (in English) have links like <can't include in 
this post because of's spam filter>.cn where the domains are 
not triggering URIBL's.  It seems that they have thousands of 
<randomword>.cn domains (very cheap to register?), and I very rarely see 
them repeat from one spam to the next.

One thing they all have in common is their registration dates are very 
young according to whois lookups.  It seems in general if we had a 
reliable way to lookup domain age we might be able to differentiate spam.

Is there any good way to query for the age of a domain?  Unfortunately 
it seems whois is too slow and the text format is non-standard.
