Ohhh!  Is that a thing?  Network operators doing crazy shit like
throwing A records to local machines instead of NXDOMAIN in order to
splash advertising at users?  Imagine users getting so frustrated at
this broken behavior that they engage in another broken behavior.

Whoever mentions "opt-out" gets a virtual smack on the back of the head.
Correct behavior is not "opt-in."
