It sounds like you're talking about DNSReport, not DNSStuff. DNSStuff
just does basic lookups, it doesn't display the full-blown error report.
My personal bugaboo with DNSReport is the red FAIL it reports for open
recursive servers. While it's certainly a bad idea for authoritative
servers to be open like this, it should not impact ordinary lookups in
