Quoting Ian Smith on Wednesday September 26, 2001:

I just ran it through strings and see what you mean. That stuff doesn't
appear in Excel.

The JavaScript looks like it is from a banner ad, which I am guessing
would be from a whois gateway page that it was presumably taken from.

I don't know the specific dates, but I believe the steps to stop mass
queries of AUNIC were put in place around that time. Chris Disspain
could probably provide more information of when steps were taken to curb
that behaviour.
