Thanks for clearing that up with all those references.

Yeah it is a lot. But not a lot when you consider the whole of the
internet operations staff, over 10 year period.  You have high turnover.

Of course, millions of dollars are at stake in some of these schemes for
you and your co-conspirators. While this isn't really the right forum,
lets consider for a moment some income related to the schemes:

  Anycast Root DNS income (millions)
  Income from DNS sales (especially if you had gotten AXFR clarify
though) (millions)
  Income from "listwashing" services (how much is this worth?)
  Income from spamming. (millions)
  Income from anti-spam services. (millions)

I'm sure I missed some things. This list is just off the top of my head.

And I wonder who owns the undisclosed patents on the 3 DNS standards
that I complained about in 2005, and was told that RFC 3979 wasn't the
policy of the IETF, and that discussion or complaints about patents were
not on-topic.
