Good heavens, no!  Roger and netcom - they are not best buddies!

Two things to try: whois, and traceroute.  So I try both, and they both
indicate best.com as carasso.com's ISP.  But again, I'd try carasso.com
first, in case it's a spoof, and wasn't him (though nothing Roger does
would surprise me).
