[wildcard-comments] Dislike wild cards
Wild card service is a fundamental change in how DNS works. That verisign implemented it with out consulting the internet engineering community is a sign of their untrustworthyness. (And this from a certificate agency we are supposed to trust!).
Personally, I think that knowing when a name maps to a intentionally registered hosts and when it does not is a useful feature of DSN. I like that my web browser tells me that the host was not found. I resent that Verisign is hyjacking traffic and distrust their ability to gather statistics about who is trying to browse to where.
