Re: I wish...

Those "mechanical" standards are the web servers doing. Nothing to do with the "internet".

You could always use IPs for your requests and avoid all of this .

By mechanical standards I'm talking about following the TCP/IP convention including proper DNS resolution instead of hijacking it to make a quick buck.

I know I'm being a pita here, but again... DNS (applications) has nothing to do with TCP/IP other than traversing the protocol.

I agree the DNS redirection to an advertised page is shady nonetheless.

Sigh, I dunno what the proper term for it is but I'm trying to say TCP/IP as in the TCP/IP model (the whole shebang), not just TCP as a transport protocol. Obviously in TCP/IP model (or whatever it is really called) DNS is an application protocol just like POP3, NNTP and SMTP and goes directly to my point which is when they piss with TCP/IP standards (in this case an application standard) by redirecting DNS or in another common case like port blocking, they break "stuff" that others rely on being 'standard' to function properly.
