Just means the domain is popular enough that others try to hijack the connection. Try the same lookup on microsoft.com :P There must be 1,000's of fake microsoft.com listings in the registry. If you look at the actual domain at the end of each of those listings, you'll see who is doing the hijacking.
ANTIONLINE.COM.SHOULD.BE.DISGRACED.ORG is disgraced.org, nothing to do with antionline.com

This isn't even hijacking. Anyone can add any prefix to their domain that they want.
For example, I could make whitehouse.gov.antionline.com resolve to antionline.com if I wanted to.
Since this isn't a bug, I'm closing the thread.
