so i hit www.internic.net today, looking for contact information for a
customer of mine, and lo and behold, it's some AlterNIC crap!  come to
find out, my name server has incorrect information for www.internic.net:

piglet [~] ? nslookup www.internic.net
Server:  mixer.visi.com
Address:  204.73.178.1

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    www.internic.net
Address:  207.51.48.15

according to my cache dump, this information came from AlterNIC.

$ORIGIN INTERNIC.net.
www     146598  IN      A       207.51.48.15    ;Cr=addtnl [204.94.42.2]

piglet [~] ? nslookup 204.94.42.2
Server:  mixer.visi.com
Address:  204.73.178.1

Name:    aragorn.alternic.net
Address:  204.94.42.2

piglet [~] ? whois 204.94.42

ATC dba ALTERNIC.NET (NETBLK-SEANET02-ALTERNIC01) SEANET02-ALTERNIC01
                           204.94.42.0 - 204.94.42.255

i do not have ANY AlterNIC hints in my root cache.  why is AlterNIC
poisoning my nameserver?
