The entity I'm calling is based out of Goldfield, so in this particular case, it isn't malicious. I'm not going to deny that there could be other malicious uses of that exchange.

It could be one of those tiny rural traffic-pumping exchanges with 
ridiculous termination fees. If so I wouldn't expect anyone to put a lot 
of effort into fixing it.
