Creative editing of your original claim that Paul Vixie was
"filtering" access to the name servers.
Of course there are times where you can't reach one nameserver or
another. Connections between any two points on the network are not
100% reliable. How you could twist this into the notion that
Paul Vixie was filtering connections in the network is probably a
question more for your psychiatrist than for you.
