I think you can put that down as _definitely_ a troll....

Based on the email address, this was probably a troll.

    We're Sorry, but you can no longer log in via the technologist.com hostname.

    Please log in at http://www.iname.com from now on.

    We regret any inconvenience this may have caused you. Thank you for stopping by.

Anyway, the fact that some of us now block BGP acceptance for the 
new.net blocks, because it causes us support costs, would be an 
argument that the Internet is less "stable".

Yes, I was asking specifically about "stability" (with a request that
someone perhaps try to explain what that might mean other than a term to
scare people with) rather than "compatibility".  BTW, I don't think ".house"
is a New.net TLD ;-)
