Who else, specifically, runs your RSC along with you, Adam? Names, email

Who did you consult with before creating .POKEY in your private universe?
Who specifically? Or was it just you, on a whim, without consultation?
Looking at your web site, you're actually proud of having created .POKEY!
Good grief!

Show us your conclusive evidence then. Put up or shut up.

Recognised by precisely whom? Where is that recognition documented
publically?  What exactly do you mean by the word "recognition"?

No, we are just being rational. I don't overlay other non-official root
servers into my customers' namespace either because they appreciate
predictable outcomes from their DNS queries.

What makes yours so special? You aren't unique, you aren't even original.

No, I want you to prove your point with hard evidence, or stop making the

You, of all people, are criticising the writing style of others? You, the
one that is ledgendary for mis-spellings and for refusing to care about
them? This pot sure is calling the kettle black, now isn't it, Adam?

You didn't understand what I said, did you. Try again.

That's fine - now our opinions about each other are identical. I'd already
formed that opinion about you.

Who, precisely, runs AURSC along with you? Noone else ever posts to this
list claiming that they do. Who specifically, Adam? Or are they a secret?

What is the management structure of the resulting set of people?

How did that management structure approve ".POKEY"?

Not even .POKEY?

And the other three are?
