[ #3429 ]

Ask mailed me at the weekend with a strange entry from where I work in his DNS logs. Turned out my boss was experimenting with the script that checks all the DNS blacklists, one of which it appears Ask runs (dorkslayers), to make sure none of our email servers end up in the blacklists (and make sure we get them out ASAP if they do!). For some reason Net::DNS had added the local part ( to the lookup.

Anyway, not much interesting to report, just thanks to Ask for being so on the ball, and sorry I didn't have a clue what your email was on about <barbie>DNS is hard!</barbie>

  • I do run a few blacklists, but not dorkslayers. :-) For them I just run one of the nameservers.

    I was using the log files while making a thingy to graph my dns stats [], that's why I noticed. :-)
