Everybody kills off anything that has the perception of breaking the status quo.

The moral is to make your success vast while keeping your organization as small as you possible can.

This has to do with not good thought out default settings of the various DNS servers out there, but also has to do with people running too old DNS servers.
You can restrict recursing resolve based on source IP, groups of IP or subnets.
First I do is define an internal mode and an external mode where external mode only sees an authoritive server and the internal mode can do recursed resolving.

I dunno about others but when a site refuses to show content without me unblocking scrips it will just get ignored.
b.t.w. US sites are really the worse with sometimes 15 or more scripts and most of them 3rd party.

Besides, unless advertisers find a way to serve me from, they will not do anything as I couldn't care less about their whining because I do not want their bought for web anyway.
They can keep their 80% of their paid for web and stick it where daylight is not showing as it's all cheapo losers crap anyway.

I appaud his idea as he did the same that most corporations do, but he was sloppy doing it.
