Actually I used to run a caching-only nameserver using bind, as well as
my own email server using sendmail, behind an ipchains/iptables firewall
on a Linux box that was also running snort.
This would have been about (counts fingers; toes) maybe 1998-99.
So I have done this for myself, thank-you-very-much.
Times are a little more complicated now and I've come to want my own
personal life to be a little simpler, again, thank-you-very-much.
Then (or finally) not to be pedantic, but I did open with:

No one should say they weren't warned.
