Hi Brian.

Yeah, seams like that. For example, the (I think) non-existant 
dulladulladulla.net resolves to 64.94.110.11, as well as 
bollabollabolla.net or verisignsucks.net. So blocking any DNS reply 
containing this IP could be a way to prevent that Verisign "commercial 
break".

Did anyone else notice that the host behind this IP seems to be down? No 
ping reply, no answer to http-requests. No, wait: port 25 seems to be 
open (so there is a machine behind that IP). But no http, so no (more) 
commercial from that host.

Bye, Mike
