The bucksright-link was found here:


Which is a more bad source I guess. ;-)

So a hoax at all? Andre76, you shouldn't have fear talking about your
(huge!) access provider. Naming it wouldn't unmask anything. So, could
you clearify this one please?

Anyways, US based TLDs and provider controlled DNS still remain as
weak points. Many wanted (by censoring) and unwanted (by failure)
interruptions are caused by DNS, I'm sure. One day we need peripheral
DNS, P2P'based or the like.
If there was a real outage and by chance caused by any DNS
problems, people with own resolver settings (other or own DNS) wouldn't
even have noticed them. ;-)
