I kind of doubt it, given that in 2017 ~15% of all domains we saw had

Looking at some current data, I find ~60M domains with an NS under
domaincontrol.com; Size-wise that is a bit over than a quarter of .com
(~220M atm, iirc),... if those are all abuse-domains,... would be a bit

Also, it would kind of mean that .it and .fr have ~100% of their
GoDaddy domains rated as malicious. Which, then again, would be an
oddity of itself, I'd be rather curious about. ;-)
