memberdir.netscape.com and ldap.baylor.edu. I believe both are Netscape
servers. Well, one of them definitely is :-)

The public directory services that run LDAP servers tend to play fast
and loose with standards. Between four11, bigfoot, whowhere and infospace,
I think I've seen every rule in the book broken. Both four11 and whowhere,
for example, have referrals to ldap.itd.umich.edu!
