There is hard evidence that most Chinese IT guys don't trust CNNIC at all. Yes, I'm one of those Chinese guys because I know the notorious history of CNNIC too well.

Just google "CNNIC malware". For instance, this page on MS: http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/Threat/Encyclope....
Maybe I'm xenophobic, but IMHO, any institution having an entry bearing its name in nearly all major malware databases simple is not trustworthy, period.

You claim that there is evidence elsewhere? Fine. BTW: you can still fix that Wikipedia article. I generally have some more trust in Wikipedia articles that are popular enough because they have been reviewed by enough eyeballs, and it is usually easy to tell when the content of the article is controversial (which means I should then further review the talk page and relevant links.
What I saw in the bug report was a bunch of poeple shouting. Beyond shouting, they provided relatively little supporting evidence.
