To a few people who have mailed me in private, and to the rest of ya…
Sigh, I know… I had started to do the stock reply of what dns
does and does NOT do, but my smart ass got the better of me.
If he had not used example.com, or if he had gone through
the archives to look for the right questions to ask,
then I would have cut him some more slack…
If he said, “ hay I googled for $FOO and searched through this,
and other news groups/lists, but every thing seams to be
related to $NOT-MY-ISSUE” ,I would have seen that he was
trying to assist himself, and been more helpful to him...
But instead, I answered the question he asked. :)_
A trip through the archives will reveal that this subject comes
up once in a while, and is answered, often "correctily".
Oh yah, have I mentioned I loathe it when people try
and hide public info?
Using example.com to hide your dns info just rubs me the wrong way,
it says (to me) I don’t really want your help to solve my problem,
AND I have no clue about dns.
 and to the people who can’t understand that if they want
to post to the group/list, its not a good idea to send
the email only to me
 I was tempted to have my footnotes be longer than the body
of this message, but alas this is not ASR
