I found nothing wrong with Palmer's post on the Worldroot changes.
The post is rather useless to me but the positive I got was a chuckle
at the list of the changes. (It sounded humorous that the changes
were posted to a list for one.) But, the message was purely
operational, there was no "message" or promotion of that root
anywhere in the message. It certainly had more operational content
that recent messages on root operator accountability.
Putting aside Worldroot, there are more than one DNS root zones in
existence. Just as there are more than one inter-networks spanning
the globe. I would think that protocol-level operators would want to
know about the actions of all of the roots, so we can explain away
some actions to our customers when they are following a "wrong" root.
To quote Randy "Procmail is your friend." A challenge to this list -
the next time (if there is one) you see a posting of Worldroot
changes, just ignore it.

Never confuse activity with progress. Activity pays more.
