The results are simple. It brings the control and containment of the DOMS
back closer to thier control.

They have to be pissing in thier pantaloons in recent months with talk of
free market DOMs and the like. So they play it like a trapped rat and make
witht he scratch bite claw to keep what little they can.

They could have EASILY just redid the DOM fee structure to make it so the
DNS hawks had to pay UPFRONT for doms rather than goldminning em and
playing crazy witht he apps to hit the DB every 12 secs.

But that would not have contained and control

Contain and Control
