         I don't know who you are calling clueless, but what you said is irrelevant.
Yes, you can put a CNAME into your own zone files. The problem is that it WON'T
work just fine on your domain name when other DNS servers request information for
the domain.  This has been explained to you over and over again and you still don't
get it.
