EarthLink Non-Existent DNS redirection

EarthLink Non-Existent DNS redirection

EarthLink,

Your spreading of your new program finally hit the DNS servers that I use on
my EarthLink DSL.
And at first blush it had all the appearances of browser hi-jacking.

So no matter how you paint it, you may not be technically "browser
hi-jacking" but you accomplished the same thing.

Your blog claims you are doing this to enhance user experience.
That's BS and you know it. The real motivation is ad/click revenue.

This feature is no different than when someone hacks a DNS server and
repoints a domain.

The only acceptable course of action for EarthLink is to disable this
"service" and issue an apology to users.
