Dynamic DNS Service Agreements
I've just paid good money to add a couple more DNS servers pointing to masanjin.net because people have been complaining about failed DNS lookups when emailing me (which is completely bizarre, but whatever—I've got to assume it's a problem on my part when multiple people report the same issues.)
One thing that really irked me was that every dynamic DNS provider that I looked at—DynDNS, No-IP, ChangeIP, etc.— all had basically the same usage agreement, including this ridiculous provision:
Customer will not use the Service for illegal software, junk pornography, spamming or any use of distribution lists to any person who has not given specific permission to be included in such a process. Customer agrees not to transmit through the service any unlawful, harassing, libelous, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature.
Now seriously. Besides the fact that it doesn't really make any sense AT ALL to speak of
through a DNS service (only transmitting information from a DNS server, and the only thing you can transmit is a zone record), are they suggesting I can't have a machine pointed to by their DNS servers that I use to view pr0n websites with? Or compose emails with the word
fuck in it? Or talk about how I love to eat steak, because that's offensive to Hindus?
Well, whatever. I'm more than happy to click the agree button to nonsensical service agreements. It's almost like I'm not agreeing to anything! Tee hee! Fucking morons.
