Change of operating model


As announced earlier, will change it's operating model.
"Heavy users" (defined as those doing > 100'000 queries/24 hours on
the public nameservers) and vendors of anti-spam products and services
will need a paid subscription.

We are now ready to implement the model and will gradually start to
enforce it. Since we do not know the current users (all we have are
IPs and sometimes hostnames), we will also need to "cut off" users if
our attempts at identifying and notifying them fail.

The "cut off" may have two of effects: 1) rsync suddenly stops working
2) queries on the public nameservers are refused. We may be able to
reinstate access on a case by case basis.

As usual, we can be reached at admins/at/ (or
office/at/ for direct access to the people handling the
subscriptions). All details are available from
