When does the non-sense end?
Would love to see an end to all DNS redirection (that is, if you can't return the correct address, don't return anything). It is annoying, useless, and potential for bad things to happen is increased.
Wish ISP's would learn to just provide Internet access and not try to provide these "value added services".

I don't know what the immediate answer is, but I know what you're saying. Think of the Site Finder abomination.
Long term, widespread "complete" deployment of IPv6 could help. The key is that encryption is mandatory to implement but at the same time optional to utilize. Ergo, provided the encryption and authentication is strong enough not to be niggled into by the likes of Paxfire, there is no opportunity for any such redirection.
DNSSEC could also potentially alleviate this problem. But that requires widespread client implementations and widespread zone signing, neither of which is particularly prevalent.
English is a difficult enough language to interpret correctly when its rules are followed, let alone when a writer chooses not to follow those rules.
