adchublist.org failed to register your ADC hub. Isn't that a problem?

And this problem is further perpetuated by an issue that can easily be solved, by removing the monopoly powers of the default hublists. DC has been at the mercy of hublists since the dawn of DC++, and still the issue hasn't been resolved once and for all. Absolutely pathetic.
