Randy, I've always thought you were good at making solid arguments, but this is
just hilarious.

Your assertion that DNS timeouts work fine in 'some failure modes' is nothing
short of laughable, especially since being able to multi-home effectively will
work fine in the failure modes you describe, plus the ones where a single
service provider causes an otherwise single-homed address to be unreachable.

Furthermore, your apparent intentional ignorance of these points that I have
mentioned in other messages is also rather amusing.

Unless you actually have something new to add to this discussion I think we're
done here.
