I'm sorry about your luck.  But there are still appropriate channels to follow.

I see Joe beat me to the punch, I wanted to confirm my response before posting.

Yes, we take calls from people "off the street."  But as per the 
agreements we have with TLDs, the problem is routinely forwarded to 
the TLD registry and then we work with them, as a supplier, to fix 
the problem.  The data in the DNS is the responsibility of the 
registry after all.

We are willing to at least help point a caller to the proper channel 
for attention.  E.g., for .ORG problems, call Joe.

Mail archives, backups.  Sometimes I think the true beneficiaries of
standards work are the suppliers of disk drives.
