They unsuspended perl.org now (~11:30PST). Apparently it was a mistake (no kidding). This is what they wrote:
Firstly, I would like to inform you that the domain name perl.org has been unsuspended.
We had received phishing complaints on several hundred domain names belonging to a particular network. Since we need to act on these complaints immediately, the domain name perl.org was accidentally suspended as well. We have now verified that this site does not contain any phishing material and have thus unsuspended the domain name.
I understand the consequences faced by you and you clients/people using the site due to this suspension. I sincerely apologize for this on behalf of ResellerClub. Be assured that this was a one-off case and we have made sure such a thing is not repeated.
Apologies once again.
This is even worse than if they had been overzealous with an abuse complaint actually on perl.org. Excuse me while I go look for my jaw on the floor.
