.ORG is Any-Casted Network Operators are Clueless|
People who claim they are Network Operators are
clueless when it comes to the simple fact that
the .ORG TLD servers have been Any-Casted.
Being Any-Casted means that there are not really
any specific .ORG TLD Servers, but instead a
couple of IP addresses which are located BEHIND
ISP's firewalls (or on the firewall/server itself).
ifconfig eth0:0 18.104.22.168
ifconfig eth0:1 22.214.171.124
All .ORG traffic is then kept local in the ISP
or the country. For large, walled-garden, services
like AOL, MSN, etc. they can control what .ORG
names are visible. They could also charge .ORG
owners a fee to be visible or maybe a fee to
be not listed. Note, people pay phone companies
to not be listed.
Note, the ICANN Board and that special team
of ICANN **experts** called the Security team
also have no clue how Any-Cast impacts .ORG.
Apparently, they approved the approach in secret
in conjunction with the Internet Society and
that sham .ORG company, PIR-something which
has a bunch of advisors that also know very
little about the DNS and Any-Cast.
Now, network operators are seeing wide-spread .ORG operational problems and they do not know
why. As usual, ICANN is silent on technical
matters which of course are discussed in secret.
