but this did cause me to update those trapper zone files and
bump the serials.  last time the serials had been bumped since
1995.  so you had the suggestion of a decade.  mahalo.

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.

I'm not sure you realize how big this problem is. It's a nuisance
problem, like having cockroaches.

I heard something nasty about goatse.cx, but I checked www and I got:

The registrar name servers have not been configured properly

..and nothing bad. I do think it's better to put up the page
locally though.

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

Wow. I wish I was seeing what you are seeing. Is it good?
