fuck off, loser.

how many fucking times do i have to tell you not to attempt to
communicate with me?

stop replying to me. i'd be much happier if you would just killfile
me if you can't resist the urge to inflict yourself where you're not

i have no interest in any cretinous thing you say.

even ignoring the fact that your hypothetical scenario doesn't even
begin to match the description of the problem ABOVE, this is irrelevant.

they have no business falsely claiming to be authoritative for someone
else's domain, and providing false DNS data for that domain.

they also have no business blocking access to IP address simply because
they don't like their rival.

you've always said far more than enough.  you're a fuckwit.  go away.

i can't possibly put it any blunter than that. please let the message
sink in this time.


ps: amusingly, it looks like some of your IP address space
(203.21.205/24 at least) is being blocked by the ISP concerned. except
for the principle of the thing, i wouldn't care less about that.
