[dns-operations] "EarthLink Criticized for DNS Redirects"

So is this a trend? There has been talk among SPs I've been working with
to have all broadband customers go through their "port 53"
infrastructure - much like Canada who has all customers go through their
"port 25" infrastructure - for the same reasons - another tool to
mitigate security nonsense and possible lead to cleaning up violated

Something like this would allow SPs to DNS poison phishing sites -
redirecting the gullible victim to a page that would help (hopefully)
get more clue.
