Somehow, I'm not impressed. Say, shouldn't the inability of any AOL customers to send email to firstname.lastname@example.org be considered an operational problem? And shouldn't "root servers" have recursive queries turned off?: ; <<>> DiG 8.1 <<>> @220.127.116.11 worf.netins.net ; (1 server found) ;; res options: init recurs defnam dnsrch ;; got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 10 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 1, AUTHORITY: 3, ADDITIONAL: 3 ;; QUERY SECTION: ;; worf.netins.net, type = A, class = IN ;; ANSWER SECTION: worf.netins.net. 21h38m10s IN A 18.104.22.168 ;; AUTHORITY SECTION: NETINS.NET. 1d1h56m48s IN NS NS.MCI.NET.
