I was doing some GUID testing using a Linked Data client and I noticed
that some Darwin Core terms did not seem to resolve to anything. I ran
a test using
I first I looked up
and all four clients reported the properties of the term. Then I tried
and nothing happened with any of them. I ran a Vapour
validation on the basisOfRecord URI and got the following message:
Vapour was unable to complete the request due to the following exception:
ForbiddenAddress: forbidden request from 126.96.36.199 to http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/basisOfRecord (resolves to IP 188.8.131.52), internal IP addresses are forbidden
I have no idea what that means, but all of this seems to mean that
Darwin Core is currently "broken" from a Linked Data point of view.
