We made an announcement in our webpage, explained the issue to technical 
sysadmins lists, and talk to everyone we know since the first day this was 
published. We also instructed our call-center staff to explain the issue if 
someone asks.

Today we did a quick survey for known resolvers (mostly from the most used 
ISPs in Chile) and around 50% of them still haven't patched their servers. So 
we contacted them in private and explain the issue, but they weren't too 
receptive so far.

The bottom line of all this, is that we're still pushing on it.
