220.127.116.11 Is the last straw
As if my hot and spikey hatred of Verisign wasn’t hot and spikey enough….
As of Monday morning, Sept 15th, Verisign has apparently taken it upon themselves to add a wildcard A record to the TLD zones for .com and .net. The IP is 18.104.22.168, which resolves to sitefinder.verisign.com. That’s right, this means all mistyped domain names go directly to a page on one of Verisign’s servers. Bastards. They don’t get another penny from me or anyone I can convince to do the same.
