The problem is just like queries over TCP, ANY was interpreted slightly
different by folks over the years, hence some of the abuse, types of
abuse and in part this thread.

Like I said, I have my brain mentally programmed to type

dig any nether.net to look for records there vs doing ‘dig {0,255} nether.net’
because the word any in english is appealing.

As usual, better tools and specifications would help.  Retraining my brain?
That’s on me.
