So, we've had to move quickly. We've sent an e-mail to all our
subscribers, but some of the messages have bounced. Since the vast

add additional POPs over the next two weeks.

Sorry for any inconvenience. We were working on a scalability plan that
would have been more seamless, but got swamped as a result of offering
the free public service. Due to the size of the lookups we propagate and
our desire to maintain privacy for SME and SMB user's custom lists, the
traditional secondary name services are not practical for us.
