This is a report I got from our campus spamcop. It I verified I can do
this with bind 8.2.2p5 by CNAME'ing my machine to localhost. The domain
is rejected as authoritive BUT it still resolves making a clever hole
for spamers. Can this be looked into so bind will stop functioning when
such a resoultion to localhost or 127.0.0.1 is made?
