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

The registrar name servers have not been configured properly

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?

Well my post was really in jest.  goatse.cx hasn't existed for years.  If
you really want to know what was there (and you really don't) just do a
quick search for goatse.  I'm sure there is a Wikipedia entry for it.

However, the point of my post that it really is a dumb idea for someone to
point their domain at your domain name servers if they aren't a customer.
You really do gain much control over the domain in such a situation.
