i am not speaking from the point of view of being impacted by it. anyone
who NEEDS to transfer this zone from the f-root server should go ahead. it
is a good diagnostic tool. malone's use is not based on NEED however, and
making it the default for nonwizards is bad, bad for the nonwizards, bad for
the internet. i am irritated about the change in the kind of load f-root
will see, from diagnostic to production, of this service. i am NOT irritated
about the load itself, and so, i'm not asking that f-root's name be removed;
rather, i'm asking that the entire bad idea be rescinded.
