How many of you use BIND in a commercial environment?
How many of you actually contribute money back to the authors of BIND?
Its all fine and good saying "When there's a security problem in BIND,
I want to know and I want to know now!" but guys, if you want this wonderful
level of support, either cough up some money to your software providers,
or write it yourself. I might not agree with how Paul is going about it,
but I understand his problems.
