(credit to Paul Vixie for the "how to blackhole traffic" for spam
reasons which I've borrowed here - *PAUL DID NOT RECOMMEND DOING THIS
FOR DNS TRAFFIC - THIS IS ENTIRELY MY IDEA*).
All true, except that Andrew Partan and Brett Watson worked out the black
hole technology that I've been handing to Cisco owners. All Cisco wizardry
which occurs in my presence is the result of other people's brains not mine.
I'm a GateD diehard, Cisco's command language makes me queasy and uneasy.
We're just about to do this. I'll tell you how it goes.
It won't help. DNS pirates don't need connectivity to your hosts to infect
your caches, they need connectivity to _other_ people's hosts.
