Thanks for the quick attention and response (to all, not just David).

A couple of Akamai-related questions:

- IIRC noc at akamai.com used to be a place to report issues with Akamai
  stuff, but that bounced.  Is there a place to poke Akamai for
  something like this?

- I understand that variable DNS responses makes DNSSEC hard, but that
  would have prevented the site hijacking in this case (the bogus server
  would not have been able to return valid signed responses).  Is Akamai
  working on that?
