I think what we're seeing here is the realization that DNS hosting,
like web hosting, is no longer something that can simply be done by
tossing a machine on the internet and leaving it there; it needs
professional management, monitoring and updates. That's always a hard
transition for some people to make, but it's one that has to be made;
that's the world we live in.

I'm not sure which upsets me more; that people are so unwilling to
accept responsibility for their own actions, or that they are so eager
to regulate those of everybody else.
