So, the MySpace DNS admins seriously point one address of the round-robin record for to localhost. Smart move.

$ host -vv
Trying ""
;; ->>HEADER< <- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 61932
;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 5, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 2

;                   IN      A

;; ANSWER SECTION:            8282    IN      A            8282    IN      A            8282    IN      A            8282    IN      A            8282    IN      A

While is most certainly "my space", I don't think many people host a copy of MySpace on their workstation...

Wonder how many people have to blog it until they fix it ;) In any case, Thinkgeek already has the right t-shirt for them.
