I sent an email to the support line of my isp pointing out that RFC-2317 style delegation isn't necessary and in fact just makes life more difficult for everyone.
This was their response:
We want to thank you for your concern and your added wisdom.
DNS Support Team
I sense much sarcasm in you... they could've just said thanks for the suggestion and left it at that. Added wisdom, sheesh.
I went out of my way to actually make it a polite and friendly email, too, so they wouldn't take offense. To be blunt, I bet I know more about sys admin work and dns than all of their support people put together. They're pretty good but most ISP's have, at best, mediocre people. *grumble*
The other "senior" admin just tried running the BLI (block-level incremental) backup of our primary DB in the middle of the day, nearly took down the damn site.
Is common sense that hard to come by nowadays?
I'm going to lunch.
