Not a bug, just paste the correct information. This is what I get from the same WHOIS query. Run your command again, you should be getting the same result, and the part that counts is from "NetRange" to "OrgTechRef". Also, what their rwhois provides, isn't even any information, so it couldn't qualify as useful. They seem to have a poorly configured rwhois server.

Code: [Select]
:~$ whois 2610:1c1:1:606c::15:0

I'm still getting the same result:

This is from a Fedora 23 host, running whois 5.2.11.

Besides, technically my query is valid, it's the answer that is wrong.  :)

Ah, if I disable redirection support I get the same answer as what you got.

And that's the key. Your whois is seeing the referral in the data from ARIN and following it. NYI's rwhois server isn't answering your query.

Translation: NYI's rwhois service is broken.
