AW: Odd policy question.

Assuming that you are running separate authoritative and recursive servers this would only be a problem when someone goes to a lame-delegated domain.

It is probably also good to note that it is a best practice to separate authoritative and recursive servers.

Ouch.  So you are going to punish the rest of the world for the mistakes
of a few people (however annoying it is).

/me just cannot imagine explaining this to my mother when she mis-types
some URL.

Granted that what your (former-) customers did was not any sort of best
practice, but I think your "solution" is a little too extreme.

Let's face it, there's no Hollow Earth, no robots, and
no 'mute rays.' And even if there were, waxed paper is
no defense.  I tried it.  Only tinfoil works.
