  Hey, guess what I just found out:  Microsoft have deliberately
sabotaged their DNS client's hosts table lookup functionality.

I thought this was part of avoiding malware attempts to block Windows

'The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments
it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest
limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of
the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext
whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the
brink of destruction.'
