RE: I've just tried new.net's plugin. Don't.
Sean: Yes, but... Now don't get me wrong, my offer to let new.net pay me to screw up our DNS was mostly toung-in-cheek. However, we are all slaves to the ecconomics of this business. I'm sure something is changing hands to establish the aliances they already have. At what price point are you willing to cooperate and if doing so enables you to expand or provide other services for your customers, isn't that the right thing to do? On another tangent, as much money as these people seem to throw away, I doubt they have enough to pay every significant network sufficiently to gain their cooperation. Realizing that, the only rational thing to do is to gain the cooperation of some key networks as leverage to force other competing services into submission. Frankly, that kind of approach sets me off pretty quick and my natural reaction is to get in their face and become a roadblock. Still, if I was one of the few selected ones benifitting from this rollout, I'd be working to see it succeed also. Could that be why we see what appears to be competing opinions on this topic?
